When a full member of ACMA is fired, forced to resign or otherwise involuntarily separated from local government service as a manger/administrator or senior staff member, ACMA provides an array of personal and financial support. Along with the benefits below, ACMA Senior Advisors Mike Letcher and Pat McDermott also act as first responders when ACMA finds out a member has been forced to resign. The Senior Advisors will contact the member and inform him/her about ACMA’s in-transition services. The following services are available to¬†Active¬†members in-transition.

  • One year of complimentary Active membership dues
  • One complimentary registration to a summer and winter conference
  • The opportunity to print contact information in the ACMA newsletter
  • A library of publications that include the most recent issues of the ICMA newsletter and the Public Sector Job Bulletin
  • The Senior Advisor and League staff will also work to find the member temporary assignments

Cities, towns and counties in Arizona may also call upon managers in-transition to assist their organization with specific short term projects. The project may entail doing a specific report, analysis or some other staff related task that their organization may not have time to do. Please note that this would be different from an interim position. If you need assistance from a manager in-transition on a specific project please visit the ACMA website. You will be able to view members in-transition on the ACMA member site – member directory.


Important for Managers In-Transition: You will need to log into the ‘Member’ section and edit your profile. In your profile you must change your membership status to ‘Member In-Transition’.
