Serving in an NLC leadership position or getting engaged through one of NLC’s member councils or federal advocacy committees is one of the most rewarding ways for you as a municipal leader to bring your expertise to the service of cities and towns at the national level. By representing your city or town and contributing your voice, you have the opportunity to impact the actions of the National League of Cities as they help to shape the direction of the organization and even national policy. Depending on your availability and the level of commitment you seek, there is a spot for you to get involved with NLC. Applications are available now to serve on the NLC Board of Directors, the seven Federal Advocacy Committees, the six NLC Member Councils, and on the Board for four Constituency Groups.

The application deadline for 2017 NLC leadership positions has passed. Check back in August 2017 for applications for the following year. 

Applications to participate on a Member Council are accepted on a rolling basis throughout the year.
