Mid-Career Managers Institute

New to local government but not new to management? An experienced local government department head looking to make the jump to the manager's seat? Ready to connect with other mid-career professionals to identify and develop signature leadership practices and strengthen core management skills? Looking for your next challenge?

If so, ICMA invites you to join the 2016-2017 ICMA Mid-Career Managers Institute. This 18-month leadership development institute is designed to meet the specific needs of mid-career managers.

Designed for ICMA members who are credentialed and want to engage in a focused course of study and connection with others who are mid-career. Also for those who may not yet be credentialed who have management experience which may be in fields other than local government AND who want to build strong ties with the profession and strengthen management skills with the goal of becoming credentialed managers.
