  • Municipalities Matter: Leadership Matters Most

    It was such a delight to see so many of you at our recently concluded annual conference. It was another record-breaking, successful event. Thanks to so many of you who attended, from all four corners of our great state.

    If you attended, I encourage you to complete an evaluation. This will help us plan for next year’s conference June 19-22 in Vail. 

    If you were not able to attend, many of the conference materials are posted on our wonderful website, which I hope you have bookmarked. 

    There were two things at the conference which truly energized me:  


    Municipalities Matter: Supporting Summer Meals

    Before you know it, summer will be here and that means a lot of fun in the sun, especially for our kiddos throughout the state.

    Cities and towns do a lot to support programs targeted for children, and I want to put in a plug for one that I think is keenly important and where municipal leaders can play an important role - supporting summer meals programs. 


    Municipalities Matter... And So Does Resiliency

    CML, individual cities and towns, and allied organizations continue working to bring about new collaborative efforts between the state and local governments to make our communities more resilient to climate-change-related risks.
