Council of Metropolitan Area Leagues
The Council of Metropolitan Area Leagues (CMAL) is an Inter-League Organization (ILO) established September 18, 1962. CMAL is an extension of local LWV's in the Twin Cities metropolitan area that address governmental issues of metropolitan wide concern. All members of local LWVs in the seven-county Twin Cities metropolitan area - Anoka, Carver, Dakota, Hennepin, Ramsey, Scott and Washington Counties - are automatically members of CMAL. Each local LWV appointes delegates, who elect the CMAL board of directors, adopt a budget, and adopt programs and studies.
