The International City/County Management Association (ICMA) last week announced the installation of its 2021-2022 president, Troy Brown, city manager of Moorpark, California, at its Annual Conference in Portland, Oregon.
ICMA’s mission is to advance professional local government worldwide through leadership, management, innovation, and ethics. The organization’s 12,000+ members, spanning 32 countries, include appointed chief administrative officers, assistant and deputy administrators, and other employees who serve local governments and regional entities around the world.
“Troy has a passion for the board’s priorities and a clear vision for how he will lead ICMA into the future. He has added a dimension to our discussions on the ICMA Board that has brought depth and solid reasoning to our deliberations,” said former ICMA president James Malloy, town manager of Lexington, Massachusetts. “It has been a pleasure to work alongside Troy in the past, and I know that he will be an incredible asset to organization in this new role.”
The ICMA president leads the organization’s 21-member ICMA Executive Board in setting organizational priorities, overseeing management, and enforcing the ICMA Code of Ethics, among other responsibilities. “Our profession has faced unprecedented challenges over the past year and time and time again stepped up to support communities,” said Brown. “I am honored to begin my term as president and serve this professional community.”
Brown has been an active member of ICMA since 2004 and was elected by the membership in 2011 to serve a three-year term as West Coast Regional Vice President. He also served as co-chair of the Task Force for Strengthening Inclusiveness in the Profession, and as an ICMA-appointed representative on the Vantage Trust Board of Directors.
“Having seen Troy’s commitment to ICMA and the local government profession firsthand, I am looking forward to seeing him bring his extraordinary leadership skills to the organization,” said ICMA CEO and Executive Director, Marc Ott. “Transformative, engaging, and effective, Troy will play a pivotal role in strengthening discourse and congeniality and helping ICMA and its members engage in challenging conversations about nationwide issues.”
Brown began his career in local government in Santa Clarita, California in 1994. He has served in various government leadership in California. He has served as the city manager of Moorpark since 2018.
“We are so proud and supportive of Troy in his service as ICMA president,” said Moorpark Mayor Janice S. Parvin. “I know his inherent traits and characteristics will serve him well in unleashing the power of ICMA, just as he has done in Moorpark.”
