MCMA / ICMA Senior Advisor Program

The purpose of the Senior Advisor Program is to make the counsel, experience and support of respected, retired managers of the profession available to individual members.

The program is designed to help with personal and professional issues and not to provide any form of technical assistance nor to solve substantive problems in a local government.
