  • Access to the Mayors Innovation Project Network, including policy experts, current and former mayors, and senior city staff
  • Access to technical assistance from Mayors Innovation Project staff and policy experts – members can request up to three short policy memos per year
  • Access to policy and program resources via meeting briefing books and our website
  • Regular email updates on cutting edge city policy and programs and timely local government issues
  • Special programing for first term mayors
Membership Fee Based on Population: New Rates Below Starting January 1, 2020!

We are committed to working with cities to enable their participation. If you are a renewing member city who has budgeted based on previous rates, please contact us so we can work with you.





















Financial Assistance Available 
In cases in where the membership fee precludes a city’s involvement, we are committed to working with cities to enable their participation. In addition to membership support, we regularly pursue foundation and individual donor funding. If you would like to assist with these efforts, please let us know.
Payment Schedule
We are committed to working with cities to accommodate their budget cycles and individual situations. Prospective members will be able to attend a Winter Meeting - held in Washington DC - before committing as a full member, or we will credit your Summer Meeting registration fee toward your membership.
Sources of Revenue
The Mayors Innovation Project relies on multiple sources of funding. As you can see below, memberships provide a critical source of revenue, which allows us to provide the quality of services, resources, and events that our members continue to expect.
