MCFOA is a professional organization dedicated to serving the demands of excellence in local government and public problem-solving. Our goal is to provide opportunities for professional development through training, mentoring and networking with members state-wide. We provide professional training opportunities at our annual conference in March, Clerk’s Institute in May, Advanced Academy in the fall, and many Regional trainings held throughout the state. Our committees work with St. Cloud State University to provide members with exceptional training opportunities. We also hold several Athenian Dialogues to promote leadership principles and practice.
MCFOA is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization. The objectives are to provide a better understanding of the official duties and obligations to members; set up, insofar as possible, uniform standards in the municipalities of Minnesota; promote good government in cities, townships, counties and State; cooperate with State, county and municipal officials in carrying out the provisions of the law; perform such other work as may best serve the interests of the public; and coordinate its activities with the objectives and procedures of the League as set forth in the basic constitution of the League of Minnesota Cities.
