African American Mayors Association 

 The 2024 Annual Conference is an occasion to converse with decision-makers in the public sector and an opportunity to share successful strategies and new ideas.

All in attendance, from mayors to corporate executives, can seize the opportunity to engage and connect with vital stakeholders about the future of our cities. This year’s conference will place a specific emphasis on building Black generational wealth. Stemming from our recent grant program sponsored by the Gates Foundation, our mayors are committed to sustaining the future and longevity of Black communities. 

Every day, mayors lead cities making critical decisions surrounding public safety to natural disasters and economic development. African American mayors stand at the forefront of effecting change in countless communities across the nation. Now more than ever, we must strive forward to produce the progress we seek. After a year of momentous change and the rollback of rights for Black Americans everywhere, from education to healthcare, the moment has come for us to coalesce around a central mission to move our communities forward. Our mayors understand that advancing our communities can only be one in a collective effort, because we are stronger together. We heed to the African proverb, “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” It is with this intention we strive forward in this moment to magnify our mission. 


The 2024 policy session tracks will offer a range of discussions vital to the strategic development of America’s communities and neighborhoods. The policy session tracks: (1) Broadband & Infrastructure, (2) Technology & Innovation, (3) Health & Education, (4) Economic Development, and (5) Sustainability & Climate Change, represent the most pressing concerns to America’s mayors, and will guide our Annual Conference’s in-depth discussions and workshops. These conference tracks will encourage an engaged and collaborative approach to understanding this moment in our nation’s history and grappling with the mission to enhance its future.


Join the African American Mayors Association, April 24th – 27th, 2024 at the Omni Atlanta Centennial Park in Atlanta, GA for “Striving Forward: Our Moment. Our Mission.” Our theme is expected to promote and elevate actions that empower the future of forward-thinking leadership, growth, and development in cities across America.
