3. Business Networks and Representatives Offices in Americas cities:
Our institution is opening representatives’ offices in 10 cities in the Americas. You will have a representative that will give you information to have business opportunities for your town or municipality across that offices. Hence, the membership that you pay for the Americas Conference of Mayors and the Americas Conference of City Councilors allows our members and leaders in the business community to work together. The goal is to provide opportunities for both the city and the Americas business sector.
4. Networking and Advocacy:
When you are serving as a city councilor and as mayor it is the closest way to work with communities. As you know, that's the relevance of your job, like no other job in the world. With the Conference of Mayors and City Councilors you can connect, network, share with other mayors and city councilors. All are prepared to recognize the challenges of being in the top position in a city or the council. Hence, building relationships and bonding with your colleagues helps you learn how to be a better mayor or city councilor and build powerful friendships. The Conference provides opportunities to dialogue with mayors on issues affecting all of America's cities. Regardless of the population in your town, there is a place for you at the Conference. Besides, Mayors and City Councilors collectively work to adopt policy resolutions giving each city a voice. You can do that by serving on the Standing Committees and Task Forces as leaders in specific areas.
