For the ICMA student chapter members graduating from their programs this semeter, their celebrations and ceremonies may look very different than past years; however, our pride in their achievements is not dimished!

In our chapters across the country and the world, graduate students in public policy and administration are cultivating their love for public service through coursework, research projects, and community service. This past year, our graduates have lead their chapters to great accomplishments and have already shown promise in their hopes of leading successful careers in the profession.

Even in times of uncertainty, its important to recognize our students and wish them well as they enter into the profession! We are confident that these young professionals will use their skills and passions for public service to continue the tradition of excellence in local government. 

ICMA is happy to share in the excitement of the graduations of the following student chapter members, and we are very proud of their accomplishments!
