Medzinárodná konferencia ICMA 2021


Medzinárodná konferencia ICMA 2021 začína už tento štvrtok 25.3.2021. Stále je možné sa na ňu prihlásiť. Nepremeškajte túto jedinečnú príležitosť!

Dear affiliates and friends,


I would like to remind you to join us at the 2021 ICMA International Regional Conference. 


It is starting this week on Thursday and is FREE to register for all of you.


Every year, members and nonmembers of ICMA attend the ICMA Regional Conferences to share lessons learned and explore strategies and best practices for advancing the local government profession. The event is an opportunity to be inspired, build skills, network with colleagues, and develop meaningful relationships with your global local government peers.


In 2021, the ICMA Regional Conferences including the International Regional Conference is going to be virtual and provide a space for local government professionals around the world to come together for discussions on leading, managing and recovering from a crisis.

We will have 5 global sessions at the International Regional Conference at times that are convenient to participants in different time zones. The sessions will be live with a Q&A at the end. Please see the details of the sessions here.


Like UNITE, the registration for all regional conferences is FREE OF CHARGE to participants outside of North America. You can register here. Once you register, you will have access to all six regional conferences including the International Regional Conference.
