OML MISSION STATEMENT
The mission of the Oklahoma Municipal League (OML) is to provide services and programs required by municipal officials to assist them in better serving their citizens, and to act as the representative of Oklahoma municipalities in interactions requiring a united voice. Since 1913, the League has served as the individual and collective voice of local officials on the state and national level. In addition, the League acts as a clearinghouse to offer services which individual cities and towns do not have the time, money, or expertise to provide alone. Of the 590 cities and towns in Oklahoma over 461 are currently members.
Any incorporated city or town is eligible for general membership by paying an annual service fee set by the Board of Directors. The League is a nonpartisan, nonprofit corporation owned, organized and operated by its member cities and towns.
