About the League

The League

Associations like the Rhode Island League of Cities and Towns exist in 49 states and were originally formed for the purpose of representing municipal government interests before the state legislature. This role soon expanded to include representation before the executive and state administrative agencies as well as the provision of technical assistance, information sharing, and training to assist municipal officials in fulfilling their responsibilities. 

The League, founded in 1968, is a blend of people, partnerships, and programs for the benefit of each and every distinctive municipality in Rhode Island. We are 39 member communities strong and together we are a powerful alliance for local government.
