"Why ICMA? It’s an international world; international thinking is part of our job today. I belong to ICMA because it is the predominant local government organization in the world supported by an engaged membership and excellent administration. It is a great gathering place for city managers interested in lifelong learning and building our profession."

- Simon Farbrother, Alberta, Canada

"ICMA offers significant strategic value to Canadian CAOs and City Managers as a companion to our world class CAMA organization. The CAMA mission statement is to champion excellence in municipal administration through professional development, networking, and advocacy. There is a natural collaboration between CAMA and ICMA that has a mission to create excellence in local government. CAMA provides our members with a Canadian specific agenda tailored to our governance framework but augments this with rich content from ICMA to enable problem-solving, wayfinding and innovations from around the globe that we can use for our own community challenges."

- Tim Anderson, P.Eng., Chief Administrative Officer, Waterloo, Ontario

"Being an international member of ICMA has greatly improved my grasp of professional management issues. Seeing how colleagues in the U.S. and other countries work to improve community outcomes in their localities is a healthy corrective for me to devise local solutions to local problems and challenges.  In this way, internationalism is a counterbalance to the inevitable pressures for parochialism - even in London!"

-Barry J. Quirk, Chief Executive, London Borough of Lewisham
