Partnering with the League

The cities and towns that make up the League recognized a long time ago that their voice is stronger when they work together. That’s what keeps the League moving forward, this collaborative spirit where cities and towns share resources, solve shared problems, and work towards achieving common objectives.  

Your organization can join the League in this collaborative approach to helping cities and towns thrive. Your products and services will help our members, and we can help you reach those members. There are many ways your company can partner with the League to gain access, networking and marketing opportunities to these 540+ cities and towns across North Carolina. 

The vendors below have met the League's standards for endorsement and we are pleased to recommend their services to our members.

After careful review of certain criteria and standards, the League may choose to extend Preferred Partner status to organizations that fill a niche business need for local governments and closely associated affiliates while exhibiting an excellent record of service. Vendors chosen for endorsement submit to the League's oversight for an added level of quality assurance to our members, offer their products or services at a competitive or reduced price, and pay the League a portion of their sales to cover the costs associated with the marketing and management of their endorsement.

If you are interested in being reviewed for Preferred Partner status, please fill out the application form linked above.

To report a particularly wonderful Preferred Partner experience or to ask for help resolving an issue, please use the feedback form linked above. Someone will contact you within one (1) business day to help you with your request.
