Mayors Association of Ohio

Mayors Association Ohio New Logo
The purposes of this organization shall be the improvement of municipal government and administration and the promotion of the general welfare of the cities and villages of this State by appropriate means, including but not limited to the following:


WHO WE ARE: The Ohio Municipal League (OML) was incorporated as a non-profit corporation in 1952 by city and village officials who saw the need for a statewide association to serve the interests of Ohio municipal government. Our mission is to improve municipal government and administration, as well as promote the general welfare of the cities and villages in the State.

In 1980, the Mayors Association of Ohio (MAO) was created as a subsidiary of the OML to focus on the unique needs of Ohio’s Mayors and allow them to meet as a separate group to discuss such. We recognize that as heads of cities and villages of the state, Mayors are a special class of officers that experience multifaceted problems and responsibilities.

WHY JOIN: Our members benefit from access to OML legislative staff, professional relationships and networking opportunities that the Association proudly fosters. The unique opportunity to work side-by-side with fellow peers allows for a sharing of best practices and exchange of proven solutions on the tough problems that Ohio Mayors face.

WHAT IS INCLUDED: Some of the many benefits of joining the Mayors Association include: personalized legislative counseling and strategy; frequent updates on the political and legislative climate at the Ohio Statehouse; unique access to all three branches of government; and the ability to network with your peers.

WHAT IS NEW: Mayors Association has formed 2 committees to take on the responsibility of managing specific topics such as legislation and membership. Those interested in joining either committee may indicate so on the enclosed membership form. Committee Chairs will be in contact with those who have expressed interest.

We urge you to consider joining the association to have greater connectivity with your peers and to be better armed for future challenges.

If you have any questions about memberships or the association please call 614-221-4349 or email Zoë at
