"Attending ICMA conferences keeps me on my game! I think that ICMA is beneficial whether you are an emerging leader, or seasoned professional. It’s always important to learn and grow. Things change so quickly in our rapidly local government world and managers must be prepared and up to date. Attending the ICMA conference does that all in one short trip."
