I encourage you to consider joining over 250 CAMA members that are also International City/County Management Association (ICMA) members. ICMA membership complements your CAMA membership and offers additional great resources for an affordable affiliate discount rate of only U.S. $135. Canadian and U.S. CAOs face many of the same issues, challenges, and opportunities. My ICMA membership offers me best practices on a global scale and provides me with access to ideas and solutions applicable across North America, to help me and my community. The excellent online resources that are available to all ICMA Members are beneficial to administrators of communities of all sizes. My involvement has also extended my professional network, connecting me with people who have contributed to my growth as a municipal manager and served as my mentors as well as my friends.
Also be sure to mark your calendars for ICMA’s 2019 Annual Conference, October 20-23 in Nashville, Tennessee, where thousands of city and county managers and their staffs from around the world will convene to discuss new ideas and successful practices on the critical issues we face every day. This is a unique opportunity to learn and connect with others from around the world who share our passion for public service. I always return home with some great ideas and feeling better informed, reconnected, and reenergized. Canada is also very proud to be hosting the 2020 ICMA Conference in Toronto from September 27–30, 2020.
ICMA has played a vital role in my career, and I believe that it can be professionally (and personally) rewarding to everyone in local government management
