Aim is the official voice of municipal government in Indiana; we were formerly known as the Indiana Association of Cities and Towns. We’re a nonpartisan organization that works closely with state legislators and other organizations on key initiatives related to quality of place and making government work better.
We believe that Indiana advances when its municipalities are empowered.
Aim represents cities and towns across Indiana, and we have more than 460 municipal members of all sizes.

Aim represents municipal government before the Indiana General Assembly. We advocate for the success of Hoosier municipalities as laboratories of innovation, hubs of talent, and the engines driving our state’s economy.
Education and networking
We host an annual conference featuring state and national speakers, workshops, and a large exhibition; as well as workshops throughout the year on a variety of municipal topics. And our Legislative Reception provides members with key legislative insights, as well as networking access in the Indiana Statehouse.
Aim publishes a comprehensive annual guide to municipal budgeting that guides members through the process, forms, deadlines, and inevitable changes involved in municipal budget adoption.
