International Affiliates
ICMA maintains affiliate relationships with local government professional organizations worldwide. These mutually beneficial partnerships are formalized by signed agreements that commit both organizations to:
  • Collaborate in the exchange of leading practices and expansion of each organization's knowledge base
  • Expand the international perspectives of each organization's individual members
  • Join resources where appropriate to more effectively foster professional local government management worldwide
In maintaining these relationships, senior officials of each organization attend each other's conferences; liaisons assigned by the ICMA International Committee and organization staff establish annual work plans and contribute to each other's publications; and members engage in one-on-one exchanges through the International Management Exchange Program.
