ICMA is working with the U.S. Department of State on a program which brings young professionals from Southeast Asia in Spring and Fall to the United States to learn about environmental sustainability issues in this country while working on a project in your city or county. Participants host two international fellows for four weeks. Hosts will have the opportunity to nominate a staff member to travel for two weeks to a Southeast Asian community for a reciprocal visit to deliver technical assistance and consultation to help engage citizens and civil society organizations.

ICMA works in the United States and around the world to increase the capacity of local governments. Through pro-bono support, local government chief administrators and their departmental specialists have been instrumental in the success and innovation of ICMA’s global programs and projects for many years. Their strong technical knowledge and daily management experience enhance the credibility and quality of our on-the-ground efforts through peer-to-peer learning opportunities. Pro bono support is not only valued during the implementation phase of our activities, but also through the proposal stages as we thoughtfully design practical and tailored approaches to pressing government needs.
