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.
