ICMA Student Chapter

The Davenport Institute is pleased to be the on-campus sponsor of the Pepperdine School of Public Policy Chapter of the International City/County Manager's Association (ICMA).  

ICMA is the professional and educational association for appointed local government administrators throughout the world, making this an excellent opportunity to build a network of contacts with local government administrators both in California and across the country.

Pepperdine's program is the second such program in Southern California, where student members will be offered a number of resources including:

  • Access to ICMA online, including research and job postings
  • Free registration for the ICMA annual conference
  • Guidance from Rod Gould, City Manager of Santa Monica, who will serve as a professional mentor for the chapter
  • On-campus speaking-engagements with those who have made a career in local government.
  • The Davenport Institute offers financial support to cover the chapter's membership fee. Priority for membership is given to students with a declared State and Local Policy specialization. The application process for the student chapter is open twice a year at the beginning of the academic semester. The application may be found by contacting our office below.
