The Missouri Municipal Attorneys Association (MMAA) is an affiliated association of the Missouri Municipal League (MML), a voluntary, nonprofit, nonpartisan organization. The MMAA is created primarily for the purpose of enhancing cooperation among and between municipal attorneys in the State of Missouri and establishing relationships with state and municipal officials, both elected and appointed.
The Missouri Municipal Attorneys Association (MMAA) provides excellent training and networking opportunities for attorneys whose practice focuses on municipal issues.  Membership is open to attorneys who serve as city attorneys for MML member cities.  City officials with new attorneys may wish to encourage them to consider joining MMAA. 

MMAA member attorneys who represent communities of less than 2,500 will receive a free membership in the International Municipal Lawyers Association (IMLA) by virtue of MMAA participation in the IMLA lite program.  Member benefits from IMLA include the IMLA magazine, newsletter and member pricing for IMLA trainings.
