For 107 years, the International City/County Management Association (ICMA) Annual Conference is where thousands of local government management professionals have gathered to share and get new ideas, strategies, resources, and solutions for managing local governments in today’s complex environment.

With four days of learning, inspiration, and connection, attendees leave equipped with the tools and support they need to make their communities a better place to live, work, and play.

No other local government management conference offers the programming, exhibitors, or networking that ICMA’s international conference offers. Discover it for yourself!

We recognize the local government management profession is beginning to recover and our communities are beginning to reopen, so we are taking our conference theme, RESTART, to heart. We are committed to helping local government leaders, managers, and staff readjust from this past year’s challenges, while at the same time reimagining the future of our communities after COVID-19.

No matter the experience you choose, in-person in Portland or digitally, you can expect dynamic conversations, incomparable learning, and opportunities to connect with your local government peers, so you can return to your communities with new ideas and best practices to chart a new course for success.
