When Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett becomes president of the U.S. Conference of Mayors in 2016, it will raise Oklahoma City’s profile on the national stage.

Cities pay dues to national and state organizations that represent their interests.

For 2014, Oklahoma City paid:

• $26,216 to the U.S. Conference of Mayors

• $80,000 to the Oklahoma Municipal League

• $23,631 to the National League of Cities.
