Service Provision by a Local Government Association

Guidance and systemization of experiences

Associations of municipalities across the world are in different phases of development and thus organised very differently. Some associations have developed a whole range of activities offering their members an extensive package of services, while others concentrate solely on lobby activities. Nevertheless, the themes and difficulties which associations of municipalities have to face show many similarities. Also, members’ need for assistance is usually similar. Associations may obtain income in different ways: (1) by collecting members’ subscription fees (2), receiving subsidies from donors or other external parties such as national ministries (3), or they may offer paid services to members and other external parties. This brochure addresses associations that are or are considering offering certain (paid) services. It can be used as a reference material, it provides a number of specific considerations that might have a role and includes examples of other associations that have experienced similar challenges.
