The curriculum, designed by the faculty at UVA's Weldon Cooper Center for Public Service and Felicia Logan, ICMA's Director of Leadership Development, is varied. 

As a participant in the program, you will have ample opportunity to hone skills and test strategies that can help you build a high performance organization. If you have made the commitment to your career in local government, you should consider attending ICMA SEI Leadership Institute. You'll take away these important benefits: 

  • Extensive peer-level and “next gen” communication. Increase networking and mentoring opportunities as a result of participating in SEI events.
  • Expanded knowledge. Gain in-depth insights into every aspect of local government leadership and management.
