Definition of Member in Transition

  1. A member in transition is an individual who is an ILCMA corporate (voting) member in good standing with ILCMA who held a position in the local government sector.
  2. The member in good standing has separated from his/her employment either voluntarily or involuntarily.
  3. The member must be actively seeking employment by pursuing local government positions throughout the state and/or in other states, provinces or countries having members of a professional local government management association.
  4. A MIT accepting interim local government employment who chooses not to or is prohibited from actively seeking employment with other government entities, will have their eligibility for MIT benefits terminated at time of employment.
  5. It is the member’s responsibility to notify ILCMA staff that they have become an MIT, in order to receive MIT benefits. It is also the member’s responsibility to notify ICMA separately, if the individual is a member of ICMA.
  6. It is the member’s responsibility to notify ILCMA (and ICMA, if a member) staff if a permanent position is obtained.
  7. ILCMA always reserves the right to confirm a member’s eligibility for MIT status.
