Michigan Association of Mayors


The Michigan Association of Mayors (MAM) is the official nonpartisan organization of Michigan's chief elected officials. Representing 101 Michigan communities, MAM works to assist the chief elected officials of cities, townships and villages; advance the various interests and operations of communities represented by its members and all Michigan communities; promote cooperation among communities statewide; and advocate local interests at the state and federal level.

Your Role in MAM

MAM members speak with a unified voice on organizational policies and goals and contribute to the development of policy by attending the annual business meeting. MAM policies and programs are developed and guided by the board of directors.

During the annual business meeting, MAM members recommend policy positions they believe should be adopted by the organization. At this time, every member attending the meeting is given the opportunity to discuss and then vote on each policy resolution; each community represented casts one vote.

The policy positions adopted at the annual meeting collectively represent the views of MAM and are distributed to the Michigan State Legislature and MAM membership.

In addition to the ongoing work of the board of directors, mayors, township supervisors and village presidents are invited and encouraged to partake in advocacy activities at the capitol and other organized events.


MAM hosts its business meeting each fall in conjunction with the Michigan Municipal League Annual Convention as well as an annual summer workshop and legislative event. Aside from the legislative breakfast in Lansing, events are hosted in a different Michigan community each year, and additional meetings and events are organized by the MAM board of directors.

Board of Directors

The MAM president serves as the spokesperson for the organization. The vice president and a diverse team of chief local officials complete the MAM board of directors.
