On June 17, 2021, ICMA canvassed 1,915 ballots (1,901 were received online and 14 by regular mail) cast by ICMA Corporate members to select vice presidents from each of ICMA’s six regions to serve the 2021-2024 term on the ICMA Executive Board.
“On behalf of the ICMA Executive Board, I’d like to thank all the candidates that came forward during a trying year to interview via Zoom, the members who participated on the Regional Nominating Committees, ICMA staff that assisted in the process, and ICMA’s members for voting in the election. We had many exceptional candidates and the regions selected an excellent group of incoming board members that I’m looking forward to working with!”- Jim Malloy, ICMA President
