The League's Inaugural E-Muni


This is the inaugural edition of the E-Muni, the once a month email supplement to the League's monthly print magazine, the Municipality. We want to make sure you have what you need to be successful in your community and often find that we have more resources than we have room for in the print version of the magazine. You are on the email list because you receive a copy of the Municipality. If you do not wish to receive it in the future, please unsubscribe.
