Are you a mid-career professional or do you know someone who is:
- New to local government but not new to management?
- An experienced local government department head looking to make the jump to the manager's seat?
- Ready to connect with other mid-career professionals to identify and develop signature leadership practices and strengthen core management skills?
- Looking for your next challenge?
If so, ICMA invites you to join the 2014-2015 ICMA Mid-Career Managers Institute (MCMI). This is a one-year Leadership Development Program designed to meet the specific needs of mid-career managers.
Objective: MCMI is designed to enhance and develop participants’ leadership abilities and effectiveness. This is accomplished by providing:
- Broader understanding of their responsibilities as leaders;
- Perspective on some of the critical leadership and management issues facing mid-career managers; and
- Understanding and awareness of concepts and techniques relevant to local government management.
Persons interested in receiving more information should email Felicia Logan, ICMA director of leadership development or Felicia Littky, ICMA program manager of membership and professional development.

MCMI members should plan to attend their Regional Summit in the Spring of 2014. Participants will gather as a group during the Thursday evening dinner with Felicia Logan, ICMA director of leadership development at the Regional Summit. For information about the Regional Summits visit the ICMA website. Regional Summits include an ICMA-University Workshop, where MCMI members will gather with other Summit attendees for a session of learning. The Regional Summit registration fee is included in your MCMI dues.
In addition to attending the Regional Summit, MCMI participants will be expected to attend the ICMA 100th Annual Conference in Charlotte, North Carolina, September 14-17, 2014 (registration fee included in MCMI dues). Each year, through its highly praised Annual Conference, ICMA continues its tradition of offering an abundance of educational, information-sharing, and networking tools to help you manage your community in today's complex environment. MCMI dues also cover the cost of attending the Annual Leadership Institute Session, held in conjunction with the ICMA Annual Conference. MCMI participants will greatly benefit from also registering for an ICMA University Workshop at the annual conference (for an additional fee).
Four e-learning courses will occur throughout the duration of the MCMI. As well, each MCMI participant will be assigned a credentialed manager to serve as his/her coach.
The MCMI program has a tuition fee of $1,500 which includes the registration fee for both the Regional Summit (with workshop) and the Annual Conference. Register before December 31, 2013 to receive a $100 discount!
We are identifying mid-career as those who hold leadership positions in their organizations, military, public/private sector, academies; and managers/assistants/department heads not ready to be credentialed but looking for their next challenge.
