Access to the key decision-makers in local government

Our membership includes more than 9,000 city, county, and town managers and senior staff. Their decisions affect 185 million individiuals in thousands of communities, from small villages and towns to large metropolitan areas. ICMA's Strategic Partners Program helps you build stronger relationships with these influential decision makers by providing your company with numerous networking, marketing, and public relations opportunities.

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 memebrs earn the trust of their constituents. Our Strategic Partners also adopt an ethical code, thereby earning greater visibility and respect among our members.

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.
