What We're Reading
Incorporating Ethics into Everyday Work in Local Government. As ICMA celebrates 95 years of the Code of Ethics, we reflect on how we develop and support ethical local government professionals as a core value in ICMA's mission to advance the profession of local government management. This month's "facts and stats" features highlights from the ICMA Ethics in Local Government survey.
Why Creating a Culture of Trust Is Key for Local Government Boards. Great ideas and improvements often come from citizen feedback, so it’s important to keep the lines of communication active and open. Read more about how municipal leaders can get information out to their citizens, and how they can do it in ways that are understandable, relevant, and cost-effective in this new blog.
