2018 Coaching Webinars
ICMA Coaching Program webinars are opportunities for local government professionals to learn about best practices, new strategies and tactics, and developing issues and trends in the field. The live webinars integrate engaging, interactive polling and Q&As, and present an opportunity for open discussion among experts and professionals about issues that are affecting local governments nationwide. Invite your team to attend to build a common knowledge base, spark new ideas and solutions to community-specific problems, and foster motivated change throughout your organization and community.
