 Preferred Partner Services 

After careful review, the League may choose to endorse vendors which meet certain criteria and standards, including superior qualifications and an excellent record of service to municipalities. 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.

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