ICMA Regional Map

The Regional Nominating Agreements for each of the six regions establish a process for selecting candidates to be nominated to serve as the region's ICMA Vice President and regional geographical protocols (customized by region) for the rotation of nominees between states or countries and position types. The processes outlined in these agreements are intended to reflect the mutual commitment between ICMA and the state or country associations to identify motivated and qualified members to serve on the ICMA Executive Board. The agreements also work to ensure equal opportunity within each region for all states or countries to be represented, with the goal of achieving a balanced executive board that represents the local government management profession and those served by it.

“Being able to represent my region is a tremendous honor and responsibility.  Throughout my time on the ICMA Executive Board, I have had the pleasure and privilege of working with some very talented and interesting people while expanding my network and more importantly making some really great friends.” – Christopher Coleman, former Northeast Regional Vice President
