ICMA Conference Travel Award


In order to encourage attendance at the ICMA Annual Conference, ILCMA and ICMA are pleased to announce that they will provide financial assistance to ILCMA members, who are also members of ICMA, wishing to attend their first ICMA conference.

ICMA will waive conference registration fees to the annual conference for two ILCMA members. ILCMA will in turn match the dollar amount of those fees to help defray transportation and housing fees. This is an excellent opportunity for members from communities that do not have the resources to allow their staff to travel to national conferences.


To qualify, applicants must be full members of ILCMA and ICMA and be attending their first ICMA conference.


To apply, send a brief letter explaining how you and your community would benefit from receiving this award. Along with the letter, please enclose an up-to-date resume and send to:

ILCMA Secretariat Office
Center for Governmental Studies
Northern Illinois University
DeKalb, IL 60115

Applications are due no later than June 6. The ILCMA Awards and Scholarship Committee will make a final decision of the names of award recipients indicating that they are entitled to a waiver of the conference registration fee.

For additional information, please call 815-753-5424.
