Stay tuned for more information about the
2017 New & Future City Managers Seminar
in Newport Beach
The city management profession is a challenging mix of fiscal management, politics, legal issues, and public relations (to name a few). The California City Management Foundation is dedicated to supporting the next generation of city managers in navigating these challenges. Our largest effort is the annual New & Future City Managers Seminar.
The NFCM Seminar is a longstanding annual workshop hosted by the California City Management Foundation, geared toward helping new City Managers and those on track to become City Managers in the future. In this intensive multi-day workshop in Newport Beach, senior city managers share a wide range of keen insights and legendary stories that help guide and inform participants’ career choices. This event is a rare opportunity for new and soon-to-be City Managers to trade ideas and receive mentoring from seasoned veterans. We look forward to it all year.
The group is limited to 25 participants who spend nearly all of their time together in close discussions, eating meals together, and staying at the same hotel. Group discussions are led by long-tenured City Managers who act as facilitators. You do not need to be a CCMF member in order to apply.
If your Assistant City Manager or someone else in your peer network could benefit from the New & Future City Managers Seminar, please share this opportunity with them! We also encourage applications from university graduate programs. Click/tap here to download our 2016 New and Future City Managers brochure.
“The general discussions are great resources, whether you are already a City Manager or an aspiring one. CCMF’s New & Future City Managers Seminar is a great opportunity to learn and evaluate what benefits and challenges the profession brings.”
– Ernie Hernandez, 2014 New & Future City Managers Seminar attendee, and current Deputy City Manager of Norwalk.
