Payment in full must be received by the deadline above, or the registrations will be subject to the onsite registration fee amount. The astronomical cost of putting on the MLI makes it impossible to allow free admittance of guests of delegates at any function of the MLI agenda. Delegates are urged to pre-register their spouse/guest for the MLI lunch.

The League’s CMO Graduation Ceremony for those who have earned their Basic, Advanced, and Emeritus CMO designations will follow the 2019 Municipal Leadership Institute.  Registrants of the MLI will be sent information regarding the CMO Graduation Ceremony.
