    The ICMA Relationship Management Team

    To identify your key staff and ICMA Executive Board contacts, use the State Leadership / Liaison Directory.

    • Fifteen ICMA Executive Board Regional Vice Presidents, members of the ICMA Executive Board, serve as board liaisons to states in their respective regions and to our national affiliates. Three vice presidents are elected from each of ICMA's five geographic regions within the United States and serve three-year terms.  During each ICMA annual conference, they divide the states in their regions so that each state association has a single vice president as its primary liaison.  Vice presidents are available as key contacts within the states they serve to help bring forward policy issues from the membership and state organizations. When their other duties allow, vice presidents also travel to state meetings in their states to represent ICMA in person and to provide updates on ICMA activities and priorities.
    • In ICMA's five U.S. regions, ICMA has Regional Directors in place who have long tenures as managers in the region and who also served in their state association leadership.
    • Ten ICMA Liaisons, ICMA members with long tenures as managers in a state, serve as state liaisons for 11 states. Each state liaison works with their ICMA Regional Director to maintain links to state associations, working closely with the state president and state association staff.  Liaisons work with these individuals to provide updates on ICMA, coordinate ICMA presence and content at state meetings, and obtain updates on issues that the state association is facing.

    The State Leadership / Liaison Directory is a quick reference tool providing a summary of ICMA Liaisons and ICMA board regional vice presidents who serve as board liaisons to states.

    Ongoing Communication

    As an added vehicle for information sharing, ICMA publishes Membership Monday, a weekly e-newsletter for state and affiliate association officers, staff, and others interested in cooperation among local government management associations.
