Formed in 1930, the Municipal Association of South Carolina represents and serves the state’s 271 incorporated municipalities. The Association is dedicated to the principle of its founding members: to offer the services, programs and tools that will give municipal officials the knowledge, experience and tools for enabling the most efficient and effective operation of their municipalities in the complex world of municipal government.

Voices

From the very start of the Association in the early 1930s, South Carolina municipal officials understood that only by working together could they effectively communicate the needs and views of municipal government to state and federal lawmakers.

Knowledge

The Association plays an important role in developing municipal elected officials’ and employees’ knowledge and skills through a wide range of training programs, publications and meetings.

Solutions

Cities and towns face many of the same challenges, and can find solutions by pooling resources and ideas through the Association.

By supporting the Municipal Association of South Carolina as a sponsor, your organization is helping to support cities and towns and enhance the resources and opportunities available to municipal staff and elected officials. The sponsorship year runs from January 1 through December 31.
