Annual Conference Scholarships

Many ICMA members are challenged by limited resources in their pursuit of gaining the very resources they need to better manage their communities. To help members experience the difference the ICMA Annual Conference has made for so many others, ICMA offers Conference Assistance and scholarships. Members In Transition: MITs are granted complimentary registration to the ICMA Annual Conference. As well, there are a limited amount of funds available to provide travel stipends to our MIT members.  Interested parties should contact Rosalyn Ceasar at or via phone at (202) 962-3544.
