Summer Meeting Complete!

NLC's small city members--over 80% of our membership--bring creativity, practicality and a whole lot of pride to the organization. The Small City Council serves as a voice and advocate for cities under 50,000, and as a resource to the municipal officials who lead them. Through the councils, cities share ideas, creative solutions and strategies that work for the unique challenges that affect small cities. 

Any municipal official from a member city with a population under 50,000 can join the Small City Council and benefit from the cross-country connections the Council offers. 

This year's Small City Council will convene in Ocoee, Florida, population: 41,073. 

Their next gathering will be at City Summit Charlotte. 

Is your city under 50,000? Contact Sarah Lindsay to get involved in the Small Cities Council!
