A Message from Mike Cully, LOC Executive Director

At the onset of this COVID-19 crisis we knew life was going to be dramatically different for the forseeable future. We also knew our cities needed answers and leadership in a way the LOC had not shown before. You can count on the LOC to be your North Star. On behalf of the LOC staff and its amazing board of directors, our mission and vision is clear: to assure our cities are supported at the highest level.

We are here for you. Please do not hesitate to reach out and connect with us.

Coronavirus Conference Calls for City Leaders

Moving forward, these conference calls will be scheduled as needed, and cities will receive advance notification via email.
