Strategic Partners Program

Your Point of Access to Local Governments

When you are looking to reach the key decisions makers in local government, you need to connect with the nation's local government managers. Managers are the professional executives within local government who see the community in its entirety without being tied to one department, interest group, or political perspective. Working in partnership with elected officials, they help translate policy into action and visionary ideas into real results. They manage the day-to-day operations that keep services up and running, while planning for the future. They supervise department heads, engage community stakeholders, develop and implement the budget, and procure products and services.

Access to the Key Decision Makers in Local Government

ICMA is the premier organization for local government managers. Our membership includes more than 9,000 city, county, and town managers and senior staff. ICMA's Strategic Partners Program helps companies and organizations gain access to these influential leaders. As a Strategic Partner, you can achieve greater visibility within the local government marketplace, valuable market research, and networking opportunities with our members. Partnering with ICMA can also help your company build brand equity as a thought leader in your area of expertise and as a key supporter of local governments.

Support for Local Governments

When you partner with ICMA, your company or organization can achieve its objectives while playing a significant role in making our communities better places to live, work, and raise families. You will have the opportunity to assist local governments by showcasing your solutions to the challenges they face in delivering services to citizens.

ICMA Code of Ethics

What separates ICMA from all other organizations is our Code of Ethics, which every ICMA member personally adopts. Since 1924, the ICMA Code of Ethics has established and enforced professional and personal standards for local government managers. It remains one of the most value-added aspects of associating with ICMA, helping our members earn the trust of their constituents. Our Strategic Partners also adopt an ethical code, thereby earning greater visibility and respect among our members.
