Advancing Municipal Leaders

​​​​​​​Advancing Municipal Leaders (AML) is a member-driven education program designed to provide continuous learning opportunities and help local elected officials be successful in public office.

Through AML, municipal officials will learn how to meet - and exceed - the requirements of their role in office. Courses include a comprehensive overview of North Carolina municipal government and are presented by the League and our partners who are dedicated to the learning and development of municipal officials.

Courses are primarily web-based, and offer attendees both live webinar and on-demand opportunities. ​​Courses will directly address the League's Vision 2030 operating principles and will be categorized by the following learning topics:

  • R​isk Management
  • Economic Development
  • Advocacy
  • Public Good
  • Covid-19
  • About the League
All courses will be included on the Events Calendar. Check back regularly for new offerings and keep informed by reading our weekly League Letter email that announces classes and registration information. Use the sign up below to join our AML mailing list for specific course offerings as well. ​

Why Should I Attend?

Not only do participants receive valuable information and education through AML courses, but also they can earn credits toward three certification levels of municipal leadership: Order of Municipal Leadership, Order of Municipal Dedication, and Order of Municipal Expertise. 

Who Should Attend AML? 

All municipal elected officials – both newly-elected and incumbent – should attend. From open meetings to municipal finances and topics in between, our courses are designed to bring officials up to speed on the constantly evolving world of municipal government. Current officials will also find incredible value in the up-to-date information on municipal operations and networking opportunities.
