The Association of Municipalities and towns of Slovenia is the biggest representative association of municipalities, established in 1992. The Association has 167 member municipalities (out of 210 municipalities) and with this it covers more than 90% of inhabitants in Slovenia. Member communities represent and accomplish their tasks in 11 commissions, as well as in 15 work groups of the Association (440 representatives of member communities are operating in these groups), in which they coordinate legal acts and regulation acts within working areas that are important for the communities.
Members of the Association are represented in the Committee of the Regions, Congress of local and regional authorities by the EU Council (KLRO SE) by Council of European Municipalities and Regions (CEMR), by Network Association of Local Authorities of SE Europe – NALAS and by Euro Mediterranean Partnership of Local and Regional Authorities – COPPEM.
In the Association of Local Authorities of SE Europe we are involved in different task forces. Our representatives are especially active in the task force for the fiscal decentralization, urban planning, energy efficiency, IT and waste management.
