Each year, the California City Management Foundation presents two awards during the League of California Cities City Managers Conference:

  1. The “City Manager of the Year” Award goes to a city manager who has gone beyond the call of duty to lead and serve their community.
  2. The “Corporate Sponsor of the Year” Award highlights a partner that has been particularly helpful to CCMF members.
