How the ICMA Executive Board Functions

ICMA’s 21-member Executive Board acts in the capacity of directors, overseeing the organization’s financial, member-related, and programmatic affairs and selecting the ICMA president. The board also enforces the organization’s Code of Ethics, which governs the professional and personal conduct of the membership. Board members attend four board meetings annually.

The ICMA Executive Board is made up of the president, president-elect, past president, and 17 vice presidents. Three vice presidents are from each of the organization’s five U.S. regions (e.g., the Northeast, Southeast, Midwest, Mountain Plains, and West Coast); with the remaining three vice presidents coming from countries outside the U.S.
