ICMAtv made its debut at the 2006 Annual Conference in San Antonio, featuring a wrap up of each day’s conference events and reports on local government issues from around the world.

ICMAtv Executive Producer Stephen Horn has worked through the United States and the United Kingdom, notably as a producer for the BBC. Says Horn, “We are very excited about ICMA TV. The shows are an opportunity to bring delegates closer to the issues that affect them and enhance their conference experience.”

Sponsored spots on ICMAtv are available to feature a best practice or case study helpful to ICMA conference attendees.  The spots will be broadcast on conference hotel channels, on plasma screens around the convention center, and on this web site.  If you are interested in learning more about sponsored slots on ICMAtv for the  Annual Conference, contact Mark Rose at mark@websedge.com or Michele Frisby at ICMA, mfrisby@icma.org
