League of Kansas Municipalities

The mission of the League is to strengthen and advocate for the interests of the cities of Kansas to advance the general welfare and promote the quality of life of the people who live within our cities.


The League of Kansas Municipalities is a membership association that advocates on behalf of cities, offers training and guidance to city appointed and elected officials, and has a clear purpose of strengthening Kansas communities. Since 1910, the League has been a resource for cities across Kansas and has acted as a body to share ideas, facilitate communication between members, and provide information on best practices in city operations.

League membership consists of cities with populations from 14 to over 390,000. The League is governed by members through a governing body of elected officials and city-appointed staff. 


The League Advocates for Cities

The League fields a legislative staff of six to represent cities at the statehouse in Topeka and, when appropriate, in Washington, D.C. The League promotes Home Rule, effective public policy and the value of local control.

The League Offers Guidance

Through guidance on new laws and administrative rules, research activities, publications, and personnel and contract services, the League provides insight and guidance to act as a resource for cities.

The League Provides Training and Education

The League provides training and education for elected city officials and city staff through conferences, the Municipal Training Institute, webinars and workshops.

The League Keeps Cities Informed

The League publishes a multitude of publications, provides numerous webinars on hot topics, and answers thousands of legal calls each year for cities to provide up-to-date information and keep members aware of the changing municipal environment.
