Welcome to GCCMA



Since traditional employee evaluation forms to do not take full account of the unique aspects of a local government manager/administrator's job, a model administrator/manager evaluation instrument and a model council/commission member evaluation instrument are included here. Both can be used to assess the performance of the manager/administrator and the performance of the council/commission member. GCCMA members can use them "as-is" or amend them to fit their jurisdiction.

Professional Management?

Members are periodically asked to comment on the advantage of professional local government management, provide information about employment agreements, and help analyze whether or not a local government could benefit from a full-time manager or administrator. The Carl Vinson Institute will periodically update resources on this topic. Presently they include:

Model Employment Agreement

The International City/County Management Association (ICMA) has recently (2003) updated its Model Employment Agreement. Local government jurisdictions and local government management professionals can use all or portions of this model to negotiate their own employment agreements.

Career Compass

Career Compass is a monthly column from ICMA focused on career issues for local government professional staff, and appears in ICMA’s JOB newsletter and online. Dr. Frank Benest is ICMA’s senior advisor for Next Generation Initiatives and resides in Palo Alto, California. If you have a career question you would like addressed in a future Career Compass, e-mail careers@icma.org or contact Frank directly at frank@frankbenest.com.
