The Virginia Municipal League (VML) is a nonprofit, nonpartisan association of city, town and county governments. It was established in 1905 to assist local governments by providing legislative advocacy, research, education and other services[1].

Albemarle County and Charlottesville are both members of the league[2]. However, Albemarle County Executive Bob Tucker's proposed 2011 budget does not include funding for the county's future membership[3].

Membership

All 39 cities in the state, 156 towns, and 11 counties are members[2].

Governance

The VML is governed by an executive committee made up of local government officials. The annual conference is in October and is when the executive committee is elected by the members[1].
