Certified Municipal Officials Program

In 2001, the League developed the CMO program in an effort to address a nationwide movement dedicated to developing efficient and effective community leaders by providing meaningful information on topics that will expand the elected official's knowledge and capabilities.
There are three levels of certification officials can obtain through the CMO program:   
Basic, Advanced and Professional Development.

In conjunction with the MS State University Extension Service Center for Government & Community Development, MML is excited to announce the upcoming CMO opportunity that will be traveling to a location near you this fall!

The class, "FEMA ICS 402: Incident Command Overview for Elected Officials, will be held at night and will include dinner, allowing an alternative time frame to receive CMO credits for those who have day-time duties that prohibit them from attending some of our other CMO opportunities that are usually held primarily during the day. 

MML members will receive three CMO elective credits for attending any one of these classes.

Please see the attached registration form for details including registration deadlines, fees, and locations that the class will be offered.



As a result of both the Annual Conference and Small Town Conference being canceled this year, League staff had to find creative ways to continue to provide educational opportunities to our members. This need brought about the implementation of virtual CMO opportunities.

Throughout the fall, MML offered seven different webinars that members were invited to attend virtually via Zoom. Each webinar offered 3 CMO elective credits, and most cost $25 to attend.

These webinars have been recorded and are available on-demand for those that might have missed the registration deadlines.

To register for any of the following webinars, please complete the attached registration form and return to the MML office to receive the appropriate access links.
