Student Membership

Students can join ICMA through an individual membership or through a student chapter at their college/university.

An ICMA student membership gives you access to the resources you need as you embark on your local government career. Students can either purchase an individual student membership* for $25 or start or join an ICMA Student Chapter at their college/university for free. 

Student memberships offer:

  • Access to local government professionals at different stages of their careers to share experiences and help you land your first job.
  • Networking with your colleagues through the Who’s Who online membership directory.
  • Access to Job ads in the weekly Leadership Matters newsletter and in the ICMA JobCenter.
  • Complimentary registration to ICMA’s Annual Conference
  • Over 5,000 online webinars, podcasts, articles, case studies, reports, and sample local government documents.
  • An online subscription to Public Management Magazine.
  • Access to the members-only online discussion groups.

*Individuals who work full-time for a local government, non-profit, or the private sector are not eligible for an individual student membership.
