The purpose of the Cal-ICMA Talent Initiative is to help managers in local government focus on the business imperative of attracting, retaining, and growing talent.
The purpose of the Senior Manager/Encore Manager Initiative is three-fold:
- Help senior managers overcome any sense of the “doldrums” as they complete their full-time careers and experience an energetic and fulfilling last few years
- Assist senior managers think about, pursue and transition into their “encore” phase of meaningful and renewing experiences
- Maintain a connection with the profession and their peers
The City/County Manager In Residence program provides an opportunity for university MPA or similar programs to host a city or county manager for a week on campus.
