Dear Mayor: 

I would like to extend to you a personal invitation to join the Mayors Association of Ohio.  The dues schedule is currently $40.00 for villages and $80.00 for cities.  There has not been an increase in dues for at least the past 10 years. Recently, the Mayors’ Associations governing board has been exploring new strategies to ensure greater financial flexibility with the association while increasing the association’s footprint through enhanced resources and more direct outreach to Ohio’s Mayors.

            Officers are selected from the ranks of the Executive Committee on an annual basis.  City and village mayors alternate as officers to the extent possible.  Executive Committee members serve 2 year terms and there are an equal number of city and village mayors represented. This plan assures that neither large nor small municipalities dominate the organization.

     The Mayors Association of Ohio holds an annual conference each year.  Membership will provide you with the distinct advantage of meeting fellow mayors in a friendly atmosphere where ideas can be exchanged and solutions explored to issues confronting all communities. The Mayors Association of Ohio is a cooperating association of the OML. 

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