Start Your Planning

As we roll out this initiative, ICMA will host a series of events in 2023 inviting public administrators to engage in dialogue and learning about opportunities for reimagination to address issues of today and the near-term tomorrow, as well as those that may confront the next generation of local leaders. Collectively called the Local Government Reimagined Conferences (formerly the ICMA Regional Conferences), each event will have a unique theme and focus. Join us for one or more!

About Local Government Reimagined

ICMA’s Local Government Reimagined initiative is our long-term commitment to helping public administrators innovate and adapt their leadership practices, management strategies, and operations in the name of more resilient and equitable outcomes for their work and their communities. It’s about helping local government leaders anticipate and understand the challenges impacting their work and communities, recognize opportunities for and target improved outcomes, and figure out how to get there.
