The Association

Association of Finnish Local and Regional Authorities

The directors

A powerful advocate for all Finnish municipalities, the Association of Finnish Local and Regional Authorities (AFLRA) promotes local self-government and the modernisation of municipal services.  

The AFLRA's core tasks are to advance the interests and development of municipalities and their partner organisations and to provide services for them. The Association brings the voice of municipalities and the entire local government sector to social debate and decision-making. Our strength lies in multidisciplinary competence and a broad understanding of all aspects of local government work.

The AFLRA employs a staff of about 170 people, who are mostly in expert positions. Our main office, the House of Municipalities, is located in Helsinki. We provide services in Finland’s two national languages – Finnish and Swedish. Find out more about us.
