Education & Training
In addition to the CMO program, the League hosts regional trainings, three annual education conferences, and other training opportunities for local officials. The League also works with the guidance of the MML Education Committee to develop training agendas that are relevant and that address current municipal issues.
Municipal Excellence Awards
The Mississippi Municipal League Excellence Awards program recognizes cities and towns for meeting the challenges of municipal government through innovative problem solving, excellence in management, citizen participation and striving to provide a higher level of service. Each year, awards are given in the areas of public safety, planning and economic development and city spirit. Winners are chosen by a committee of judges outside of the MML and are recognized at the MML Annual Conference. 2020 Excellence Awards applications are due April 30, 2020.
