About NLC
 
The National League of Cities (NLC) is dedicated to helping city leaders build better communities. Working in partnership with the 49 state municipal leagues, NLC serves as a resource to and an advocate for the more than 19,000 cities, villages and towns it represents.
 
NLC members are municipalities from across the country. A city or town joins NLC and the elected officials and staff participate in NLC's programs, activities and governance. State municipal leagues, such as the League of California Cities, are also active members of NLC, guiding the organization's priorities and serving as an important link to cities in their state. And, NLC offers membership opportunities for members of the private and non-profit sector.
