Lead with NLC Member Councils


Applications open Monday, August 13!

NLC’s member networking councils bring together leaders from communities that are similar in size, type, or another important characteristic. The councils provide a space for local leaders to network and exchange ideas around issues of importance to the varying types of communities. Councils meet at the annual Congressional City Conference in March and the City Summit Conference in November, and occasionally at another time in between depending on the council.
