TCMA-ICMA Coaching Program
The Texas City Management Association (TCMA)-ICMA Coaching Program is a program offered through a partnership between TCMA and the ICMA Coaching Program. The program assists senior managers, grow talent, and initiate staff development throughout their organizations. In addition, emerging leaders can foster relationships with senior managers to help develop knowledge and skills in local government management. Several tools are available to provide assistance.
Webinars are offered free of charge to TCMA members and their city staff. Top presenters from across the country are selected to present on a variety of topics, share best practices, and provide information on career development in local government. Each webinar is designed to encourage group participation from city staff or you can attend as an individual. For more information on webinars and to register, please view the ICMA website.
