Support for Local Governments

When you become an ICMA Strategic Partner, your organization can play a significant role in making our communities better places to live, work, and raise families. Strategic Partners can provide local government managers with the tools and resources they need to build stronger and more sustainable communities.

 

ICMA ANNUAL CONFERENCE

 

The ICMA Annual Conference is the single largest gathering of local government managers in the world. The Annual Conference is an opportunity for Strategic Partners to gain visibility among the more than 3,000 local government professionals who attend the three-day event. Strategic Partners receive complimentary registrations to the conference, invitations to the Leadership Reception and Dinner, priority placement and discounts on exhibit hall booths, pre- and post-conference attendee lists, and special acknowledgment throughout the conference. Strategic Partners also have the opportunity to submit suggestions for conference sessions and speakers, and participate in the Conference Planning Committee meeting and solutions track committee.

 

SURVEY RESEARCH

ICMA has collected more data on local governments than anyone else beside the federal government. ICMA identifies concerns of immediate importance to local governments and conducts surveys that provide useful information for local government decision makers. Partners can sponsor new surveys and receive discounts on ICMA survey data.

 

ICMA UNIVERSITY

Education-icon-Gold

 

 

ICMA provides high-quality training to local government professionals in the form of Web workshops and conferences, podcasts, and other career development programs. Partners can sponsor individual training programs or participate as a topic expert.
