A board of Directors, made up of elected and expertise city and town officials, govern the Oklahoma municipal League. The League is a nonpartisan, nonprofit corporation owned, organized and operated by its member cities and towns. Since 1913, the Oklahoma Municipal League has been the united voice of municipal government in Oklahoma and has developed over the years into an organization to represent more than 350 member cities and towns.
