CCMF To Host 2017 New & Future City Managers Seminar

2017 NFCMThe New and Future City Managers (NFCM) Seminar is a longstanding annual workshop hosted by the California City Management Foundation (CCMF), geared toward helping new City Managers and those on track to become City Managers in the future. In this intensive, multi-day workshop, 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. 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.

The 2017 New and Future City Managers Seminar will be on November 3 – 5, 2017 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Newport Beach. The deadline to submit applications is Thursday, September 14 at 5:00pm.

Applicants do not need to be CCMF members to apply. Successful applicants will already be a City Manager (or equivalent) or on track toward becoming one; Assistant City Managers and university graduate program attendees are also welcome to apply. There is a $500 cost to attend the CCMF New & Future City Managers Seminar, but that cost includes all meals, lodging, and all Seminar materials. Due to the intensive nature of the NFCM Seminar, CCMF strongly urges attendees to fully participate in all meals and networking activities.
