Need help promoting the benefits of council-manager government and professional local government management to residents, business leaders, civic groups, citizens boards and commission, students, and other audiences? If so, check out the new tool ICMA just added to its arsenal of resources in support of the form.

Sponsored by ICMA’s Future of Professional Management Fund, “Local Government That Works: The Council-Manager Form of Government” is a two-minute, animated “explainer” video designed to educate the general public about the benefits of council-manager government and the management professionals who oversee the day-to-day operations of our communities. In keeping with current trends, the video is succinct, colorful, and fast paced.

Local Government That Works” is the perfect introductory video for individuals and groups who want to advocate adoption or retention of the council-manager form and professional local government management.
