NCLM Branding

​​Our New Brand

For more than a century, the North Carolina League of Municipalities has been the trusted voice for cities and towns. That’s why today more than 540 municipal governments of all sizes stand together as League members.

But a lot has transpired since the League’s founding as a federation of cities in 1908, and our collective success is rooted in our ability to evolve with the times. We’re still the League you know and trust, but with a fresh approach for today. It comes with a new logo, a new tagline, and a strengthening of values.

The Rebranding Process

The rebranding process began last year with a comprehensive look at the League’s history, standards, services and what they mean for

municipalities today. We worked with award-winning branding professionals, conducted indepth research, and involved municipal leaders to best capture what our members, and the state as a whole, expect from us.

This researach guided our brand strategy and helped us zero in on the messaging and look and feel that represents our diverse collective of cities and towns.

The overlapping squares of various sizes represent the diversity of cities and towns, working together to achieve their goals and improve life for all in North Carolina.
