Founded in 1932, the U.S. Conference of Mayors is a nonpartisan public officials’ association that promotes the mutual interests of U.S. cities with populations over 30,000. Its members develop collective policy positions that underlie advocacy and lobbying efforts to influence the development of national urban policy. More generally, the Conference facilitates the mayors’ sharing of information on issues such as transportation, community development, economic growth, and homelessness.
