The Arkansas Municipal League offers five optional benefit programs to its membership, as well as a range of services that have been developed in response to the specific needs of Arkansas’ cities and towns. In an effort to always be of maximum benefit to League members, these areas of assistance are designed to adapt as the needs of municipalities change.
