Membership Overview

The newly launched African American Mayors Association (AAMA) was established to represent over 500 African American mayors and their 48 million constituents across the United States. We are a premiere organization representing black elected officials, and we focus on empowering our mayors in their communities and elevating their voice on a national stage. We strengthen the executive abilities of our member mayors, and we advocate for public policy positions that benefit our constituents. Every year we will host an annual conference, bringing together our member mayors, their staffs, White House Officials, elected officials, business leaders, educators, and other dignitaries.

Member mayors of the AAMA join committees that recommend the policy positions they believe should be adopted by our organization. Ultimately, the policy positions adopted by committees reflect the collective view of our organization and will be made available to White House officials and other interested parties.

  • Active Membership Status: Members enjoy full voting privileges as provided in our governing Bylaws.
  • Committee Membership: Members may be appointed to our standing and policy-focused Committees.
  • Meeting Privileges: Members pay reduced fees at any organizational event open to the public.
