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.
