The New York State City/County Management Association is a professional organization of appointed chief executive officers and administrators, other appointed municipal officials and educators dedicated to the improvement of local government and the quality of urban life.
Known prior to 1998 as the Municipal Management Association of New York State, and prior to 1976 as the City Managers Association of New York State, the organization fosters attainment of its objectives through communications among its members, distribution of information and ideas as well as meetings and conferences. Such communications and interchanges focus on effective management techniques, efficient delivery of quality services and ways to serve communities best through the council-manager form of local government.
A principal channel of communication amongst the membership is the Association List Serv, administered through our Secretariat, SUNY Brockport. Another major communications catalyst is the Association’s annual spring conference, of four days duration, which features lectures, panel discussions and workshops on a wide variety of local government concerns and issues. The organization’s annual business meeting is conducted during the conference.
