Host a Fellow

HOST ORGANIZATIONS PROVIDE:

WORK PLAN

The purpose of the work plan is to ensure an enriching professional learning experience for the fellow. They include a job description, along with details on fellowship goals, mentor assignments, fellowship structure, etc. Work plans should be prepared and submitted before a host community begins interviewing candidates.

 

DEDICATED MENTOR

For the duration of the fellowship, the mentor will serve as the primary point of contact and coach. The mentor should hold a senior-level position in the organization and should not be the fellow's direct day-to-day supervisor.

 

SALARY & BENEFITS

Hosts commit to provide fellows with a one-year, full-time competitive salary and benefits. Salaries vary based on several factors, including the cost of living in or around the host community.

 

TRAVEL EXPENSES

Fellows are required to attend the ICMA Annual Conference. There is no registration fee for fellows. However, hosts are expected to cover travel expenses. Hosts are also encouraged (but not required) to support travel and accommodation to at least one of the following events: ICMA Regional Conference, Emerging Professionals Leadership Institute, NFBPA Annual FORUM, LGHN Biennial Conference, and/or state manager’s conference.

 

ICMA PROVIDES: 

RECRUITMENT & SCREENING

The LGMF Advisory Board selects finalists based on academic performance, demonstrated leadership potential, commitment to public service, communication skills, initiative, creativity, and positive attitude. Host organizations then select fellows based on their specific needs. 

 

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

Fellows are expected to participate in several scheduled professional development calls with ICMA throughout their fellowship. Along with access to ICMA’s free coaching resources, fellows receive complimentary registration to the ICMA Annual Conference and an ICMA Regional Conference during their first year. They are also granted free access to ICMA’s Applied Knowledge Assessment and a free subscription to PM Magazine.

 

ICMA MEMBERSHIP

Fellows receive a complimentary 2-year membership to ICMA with access to all qualifying member benefits.
