Again this year, ICMA will partner with WebsEdge, a media production company based in Washington, D.C., and London, to produce ICMAtv, a daily television program that will air in conjunction with the 105th ICMA Annual Conference in Nashville, Tennessee, October 20-23, 2019.
The 2019 edition of ICMAtv will highlight examples of local government leading practices, innovation, and leadership excellence. The four days of programming will feature interviews with keynote and featured speakers, ICMA leadership, news and color commentary from the conference floor, thought leadership films from private and federal government organizations, and prerecorded videos highlighting the best of ICMA member communities. Episodes will be screened throughout the Nashville Music City Center and in select guest hotels and online.
In addition to being featured in the daily ICMAtv conference programs aired onsite, on the ICMA YouTube channel, and on WebsEdge’s ICMAtv.com, communities that chose to develop a prerecorded video find that the final films make outstanding promotional or informational pieces that can be used to showcase their community or for outreach, fundraising or partnership proposals, marketing, recruitment, and other purposes.
Beginning in April, the ICMAtv team at WebsEdge will reach out to local governments on behalf of ICMA regarding development of the prerecorded community videos. There are a limited number of slots available on a first-come, first-served basis. There is a cost associated with the production of each segment.
If you are interested in creating a film segment, contact Richard Price, WebsEdge ICMAtv director at email@example.com. The WebsEdge staff will create a customized proposal and cost structure for you based on the content and complexity of your project. If you choose to participate, a dedicated WebsEdge producer will work closely with you to produce the video of your choice. Your community will retain full ownership of the film and all additional footage.
