Athenian Project Class of 2020

Recognizing an extraordinary group of leaders

By Felicia Logan | Apr 1, 2021 | ARTICLE

The Athenian Project is an 18-month journey to transmit yourself, your community, and the local government profession into a greater and more beautiful version than before.

The project was designed by tenured ICMA members to provide leadership development that challenges the big issues of the day and provides an opportunity to embrace a personal challenge with a group of like-minded colleagues.
