ICMA Is Committed to California
Cal-ICMA is a collaboration of the League of Cities City Managers’ Department (CMD), the California City Managers Foundation (CCMF), the Municipal Management Associations of Northern California (MMANC) and Southern California (MMASC); the California Association of County Executives (CACE); the COG Directors Association of California; along with members of the academic community and from all of the other ICMA membership categories. Cal-ICMA is inclusive of all ICMA members.
Cal-ICMA coordinates member service activities for California, including: professional development and training; new member recruitment and member retention; response to “ethics issues” relating to ICMA members; and appointments to ICMA committees, task forces, and nominees for the ICMA Executive Board.
This collaborative maintains a strong relationship between ICMA and its members in California and creates a broader base of collaboration between all local government management professionals in the state, particularly in the area of professional development and training.
More than a Decade of Partnership with MMANC & MMASC
Since 2005 MMANC and MMASC have partnered with ICMA to offer their members exceptional resources and networking opportunities.
A special flat dues rate for MMANC and MMASC members working in local government was developed and was so successful that ICMA’s partnership with MMANC and MMASC became the model for an extraordinary dues rate for affiliate members nationwide!
ICMA provides one free year of affiliate membership for graduates of the MMANC/SC Credentialed Government Leader Program. Once completing the CGL Program, continue your professional development through ICMA conferences, webinars, and online resources.
Graduation from the MMANC/SC CGL program can also count toward experience requirements for the ICMA Credentialed Manager Program.
