About Aim


Formerly known as the Indiana Association of Cities and Towns, Aim is the official voice of municipal government in Indiana. We are a nonpartisan organization that works closely with state legislators on critical long-term issues, as well as key initiatives related to innovation and quality of life.


Our work involves

Advocacy

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. We work closely with legislators on quality of place initiatives and make a strategic, long-term commitment to tackling critical initiatives.

Conferences & Events

We host an annual conference featuring state and national speakers, workshops, and a large exhibition. Our education and events lineup includes webinars, roundtables, a legislative dinner, budget workshops, and so much more.

Municipal Management Institute

Aim offers workshops throughout the year on a variety of topics across the state. You can obtain certification levels each year, leading to becoming a “Certified Municipal Official.”

Budgeting

Aim publishes a comprehensive annual guide to municipal budgeting that guides you through the process, forms, deadlines, and inevitable changes involved in municipal budget adoption.
