Do I Qualify?2024-07-10T09:21:13-07:00

CCMF membership is available to all California city managers and assistant city managers, whether current or retired. In some cities and towns, these positions can sometimes have different titles such as town manager or CAO. CCMF does not have a specific list of titles that qualify an individual for membership, but rather looks at each application individually. If you are the first or second-ranking administrative manager in a city or town in California, we welcome you to join.

Senior assistants who have been designated by their city manager to be qualified for membership in the city managers department for the League of California Cities are also eligible for membership.

At this time, students are not eligible for membership.

If you are still unsure if you qualify for membership, go ahead and sign up for membership and someone will be in touch shortly to discuss the details of your application.
