Sponsorship Opportunities

Why sponsor the Local Leaders Council?


The Local Leaders Council is a national bipartisan network of leaders who are championing the development models of tomorrow. These are the leaders who start and spread trends, from creating walkable downtowns and launching start-up incubator space, to leveraging technology for smarter transportation and tackling urban food deserts.

As a sponsor, you will become a part of the movement toward sustainable, equitable, and fiscally responsible community development.

Sponsor the Policy Forum

The Policy Forum is the invitation-only, signature annual event of the Local Leaders Council. Attendees are the decision-makers and thought leaders of their communities, and they influence their colleagues around the country.

Policy Forum 2015: Growing the New Economy will bring together over 100 elected and appointed local leaders on June 1, 2015 in Washington, DC to exchange strategies that lead to healthy, sustainable, inclusive communities and build on local assets, attract new talent, and support existing businesses.

Visibility, awareness, and co-branding opportunities are available through premium and custom sponsorship packages.
