Senior Advisors are volunteers, available to meet periodically with members in their state or area to discuss the profession and the concerns of managers. Discussions range from problems with mayors and councils, overall management questions, relations with ICMA, responses to local controversies such as referenda on the council-manager plan to career development counseling. All discussions are confidential. The Senior Advisor program is designed to help with personal and professional issues, not to provide any form of technical assistance or solve substantive problems in a local government. Range Riders also assist communities interested in adopting or retaining council-manager government. Senior Advisors are selected jointly by the ICMA Executive Director and either the advisor's state association and/or state municipal league. ICMA and the sponsoring state organization share travel and other expenses. The amount of expenses allocated depends on the size of the state, the number of Senior Advisors, and funds available from the sponsors. Please contact the association if you wish to utilize the New York State Senior Advisors. One additional distinction should be made about Senior Advisors; they are sometimes confused with circuit riders. Circuit Riders or shared administrators are professionals who serve more than one community. They may not have the full responsibilities of a city manager but they at least provide technical assistance and often provide overall management services. For More Information on the Senior Advisor program go to the Senior Advisor Program at ICMA.
