​ 2021-2022 Municipal Leadership Academy


The Municipal Leadership Academy (MLA) is conducted following the regular city elections, which are held in odd-numbered years. MLA offers education on a variety of important city government topics and is a great way to prepare for your role as a city official.

MLA is designed to help all city officials better understand their role in municipal government and how to effectively serve their community. It is widely considered essential training for elected officials, especially those recently elected to office.

The three-part training series offers a comprehensive overview of city government and is presented by the Iowa League of Cities and the Office of State and Local Government Pr​ograms at Iowa State University Extension and Outreach.
