For cities with more than 2,000 in population, copies are automatically mailed to: mayor, council members, clerk and the admin/manager. Each city can receive up to 10 complimentary copies as part of their membership with League, and many cities choose to also receive a copy for the public works director and attorney. Cities can change the default positions that receive the magazine by written request.

For cities with fewer than 2,000 in population, copies are automatically mailed to: mayor, clerk and admin./manager. Cities can change the default positions that receive the magazine by written request. To ensure member satisfaction, we can accommodate council members in cities with populations less than 2,000 who claim the subscription price is a hardship by granting a complimentary subscription if they submit their request in writing.

No other complimentary subscriptions will be added without the consent of the executive director or the communications coordinator. For associates, partners, endorsed programs and advertisers with current contracts, one copy is sent to the advertising contact person.

Additional subscriptions can be purchased for $25 by sending a check and the subscriber’s name and address to the League office. Non-member subscriptions are $60 per year.​
