ICMA Regional Summits

An opportunity to network with colleagues and participate in a professional development opportunity in your region.

Each year, ICMA Regional Summits are planned in six regions: Southeast, Mountain Plains, West Coast, Midwest, Northeast and Intenational. The summits offer an opportunity to network with colleagues and to take advantage of a professional development opportunity in the form of an ICMA University workshop, discuss ICMA issues and programs, and provide feedback to the ICMA Executive Board and staff.
