Cal-ICMA Programs

Cal-ICMA offers a wealth of programs for local government professionals at all career stages.

The purpose of the Cal-ICMA Talent Initiative is to help managers in local government focus on the business imperative of attracting, retaining, and growing talent.


The purpose of the Senior Manager/Encore Manager Initiative is three-fold:

  1. Help senior managers overcome any sense of the “doldrums” as they complete their full-time careers and experience an energetic and fulfilling last few years
  2. Assist senior managers think about, pursue and transition into their “encore” phase of meaningful and renewing experiences
  3. Maintain a connection with the profession and their peers


The City/County Manager In Residence program provides an opportunity for university MPA or similar programs to host a city or county manager for a week on campus.


Cal-ICMA's Ethics Committee provides members with an array of information, access to programming, and awards.
