The Oregon City/County Management Association (OCCMA) is comprised of Oregon city and county managers, chief administrators, assistants to city and county managers and administrators, and other consultants and academics professionally interested in local government in Oregon.  Our mission is to support and stimulate our members and the profession in order to foster responsible, responsive local government with the objective of improving the livability of Oregon communities.

Patterned after the International City/County Management Association (ICMA), OCCMA is governed by a Board of Directors elected from its membership made up of its three officers (President, a President-Elect, an Immediate Past President) and eight Board members.

The major mission and goals of the Oregon City/County Management Association parallel those of ICMA.  Many OCCMA members are also members of ICMA.  Both organizations serve as a useful network for local government managers to share ideas and information.  They also function as a strong base for personal and professional support and development.  You do not need to be a member of one organization to join the other.
