International City/County Management Association
The International City/County Management Association (ICMA) is the professional home for more than 13,000 local government leaders, managers, staff, and stakeholders committed to developing and promoting the best practices in governance at the subnational level. Since its inception in 1914, ICMA has provided research and knowledge resources, training, technical assistance, and peer-to-peer programming for the chief appointed officials and their staff that run thousands of local governments in the United States and around the world. Since the late 1980s, ICMA has implemented over 500 programs in more than 70 countries, delivering hands-on assistance by tapping into the knowledge and skillset of its members, who provide long-term learning, mentorship, and partnership opportunities for their counterparts in local government.
