About The Northeast Ohio City Council Association, Inc. (NOCCA)

Realizing the need for a unified voice, the Northeast Ohio City Council Association (NOCCA), formerly Greater Cleveland Suburban Council Association (GCSCA), was formed in 1989 as a voluntary membership organization designed to provide education opportunities for its members that include quarterly forums that increase their knowledge base; strengthen their professional skills; facilitate communication among elected municipal, township and village council members; and develop solutions to common regional issues and concerns..”

In its efforts to aid local Councils in improving their skills and increasing their knowledge base, the Association provides the following opportunities for its members:
  • facilitate communication among communities
  • develop solutions to common problems and concerns
  • exchange ideas and information
  • enhance professional skills by providing scholarships for training
  • publish a quarterly newsletter
  • offer quarterly forums regarding subjects relevant to effective and responsive government

Throughout its history, NOCCA has provided programs and speakers who cover topics relevant in all communities. Programs have included: The Art of Civility in Politics: Reaching Across the Aisle; Let’s Talk Jobs; State Funding: What Local Government Can Expect; and Cuyahoga County: Past, Present and Future Growth.

Please remember to visit our website to view a complete listing of all forums and to check out the webcasts of the most current forums.

The organization continues to grow with its ongoing leadership and dedicated board members. The membership today is approximately 300 members representing 40 cities across Northeast Ohio.
