ICMA's purpose is to provide the inspiration, education, and connections you need to grow and thrive in the profession. In 2019, you'll find that the Regional Conference program (formerly known as the Regional Summits) is full of NEW educational breakout sessions, hands-on lessons, and networking opportunities that offer local government professionals the leadership essentials needed to succeed.

Regional Conferences will take place on various dates and in various regions throughout the U.S. and internationally. Can't make your Regional Conference? Now you can attend a Conference in any region! A full overview of the event, cost, venue details, timing, and content programming will be provided in the fall.

The ICMA Regional Conference Experience

Check out our attendees' experiences over the years at similar events. 

"An offering of professional development in a personal setting, networking with individuals outside of your own state, and a path forward for greater leadership roles in our profession at a national level.  Public managers serious about enhancing their impact must attend." - Mark McDaniel, Assistant City Manager, City of Dallas

"A great way to grow your network, especially with professionals that are in your region and nearby states. Much of the agenda is geared toward easily applicable programs or ideas that you can use in your city or county or in your own professional growth." - Susan Sherman, Assistant City Manager, Olathe, Kansas

"A great opportunity for renewal—whether it’s professional development, networking with colleagues, or catching up on the business of our association and what other states are doing.” - Tom Lundy, Retired County Manager, Hickory, NC

"For those new to the profession or just looking to reconnect and expand their networks beyond their community’s borders, I highly recommend attending. It’s great fun!” - Jessie Baker, Assistant City Manager, City of Montpelier, Vermont
