Emerging Managers

Who we are: The Emerging Managers are a group of local government professionals who are interested in professional development, networking opportunities, and growing their career in local government and, in particular, city management. We are interns, management analysts, assistant to the city managers, small town managers, and anyone interested in growing their career in local government.


What we do: The Emerging Managers host happy hour networking events all across the state, an Emerging Managers Summit, workshops and other engagement opportunities throughout the year. There is also a monthly newsletter with professional development oportunities, job announcements, and relevant articles.
