ICMA Member Benefit
The Affiliate Member Assistance Program (AMAP) was created in 2020 in response to COVID-19 and the economic impact on local governments. The program includes a dues waiver to Affiliate members working for a local government who experience a job loss during this economic crisis and a program to support these members remaining in the profession of professional local government management.
In order to qualify, members must be in good standing, working for a local government at the time of job loss, and not eligible for the Members in Transition program.
To enroll, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Complimentary Membership: Once enrolled in the Affiliate Member Assistance Program, your ICMA membership will be renewed at one (1) year at no cost to you.
- Complimentary, unlimited access to ICMA University webinars, that are priced at $149 for members.
- Free enrollment in The Emerging Leaders Development Program (ELDP), a two-year cohort program; designed to help early to mid-career professionals build knowledge, skills, and abilities in the basic management and technical topics that managers need to know to be successful. Through a unique format that blends monthly teleseminars with senior credentialed managers or public administration professors, ELDP minimizes your time away from work and maximizes your local government expertise.

Since ICMA membership belongs to the individual, not the local government, it is important for members to contact ICMA whenever there is a change in employment status. Reach out to us at email@example.com or call 202-962-3680.
