About Us

The Pennsylvania Municipal League is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization established in 1900 as an advocate for Pennsylvania’s 3rd class cities. Today, The League represents participating Pennsylvania cities, boroughs, townships and home rule communities that all share The League’s municipal policy interests. Our Board of Directors oversees the administration of a wide array of municipal services including legislative advocacy (on both the state and federal levels), publications designed to educate and inform, education and training certification programs, membership research and inquiries, consulting-based programs, and group insurance trusts.

We are continually monitoring the needs of our members and are committed to providing the Commonwealth’s municipalities with cost-effective programs and services required to meet the distinct needs of their communities.


The Pennsylvania Municipal League strengthens and empowers effective local government through advocacy, education, and support for our members.
