"There is sometimes a misconception that the demands of serving on the ICMA Executive Board – and the associated travel – can interfere with the work we do in our communities.  While service to the executive board is hard work, balance can be achieved.  Much of the work happens remotely and given the advances made during the pandemic, board members have new ways to connect and collaborate.  I know that you get out of board service what you put into it. The work is impactful and can be done without sacrificing the work we each do in our communities." - Troy Brown, ICMA President-Elect & former Regional Vice President, West Coast Region
