The organization represents cities and towns. It is a private, non-partisan membership association representing the interests of municipal officials and to "provide them services which enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of city and town services," according to its website.
Fung will be formally appointed at the group's annual meeting tonight at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Warwick.
He will replace Diane Mederos, Bristol's town administrator.
