Learning from Peers

Mayors face unique challenges in the executive role. For 15 years, we have created a connected community of mayors dedicated to improving their cities through a high-road focus on equity, sustainability, and democracy. We create spaces for mayors to connect with each other and help them amplify what works.

Membership in the Network

Our network consists of cities in all regions and of all sizes, with a special focus on serving smaller and medium-sized communities. Through membership in our network, mayors find collaboration. We are here to help you succeed, and our role is to connect you to the tools, resources, and innovators that will help you do just that.
