ACMA Honors Joshua Wright with Associate's Award for Excellence in Leadership
Introduced two years ago, the Associate's Award for Excellence in Leadership is designed to recognize associate ACMA members who contribute to the profession through their organization at an associate level rather than the CEO level.

This year's Associate's Award for Excellence in Leadership winner was Josh Wright, Assistant to the Town Manager in Marana.

Josh joined the Town of Marana in 2006 and has filled a number of critical roles for the growing organization, including interim assignments running the town's building services division and economic development office. Josh was also the driving force behind the implementation of the town's successful Citizen Request Tracker system and is credited with transforming the town's Business and Economic Development Advisory Committee from one with little direction to one with a clear goal and purpose.

In addition to his involvement with ACMA as an Associate Representative on the Board and Chair of the Winter Conference Planning Committee, Josh helped create the Southern Arizona Chapter of the American Society for Public Administration and serves as president of the Marana Rotary Club. Josh holds his MPA from the University of Arizona, where, among other honors, he was recognized with the Lionel E. Rombach Outstanding Student Award, which is conferred on the most outstanding graduate student as voted by the program's faculty.
