The N.C. City & County Management Association (NCCCMA) is currently seeking nominations for Life Members. Current NCCCMA members are encouraged to submit nominations for those recently retired or even soon-to-be-retired NCCCMA members who they believe should be recognized as Life Members.
According to the association by-laws, Life Members are any active member who has completed 25 years of membership, upon retiring from active service with a municipality, county, or council of government shall become a paid-up Life Member. Any member who has been an active member for at least 15 years upon retirement at age sixty-five or later shall become a paid-up Life Member. Any member who has retired from active service with a municipality, county, or council of government who in the opinion of the Executive Committee has made an outstanding contribution to the development of the profession may be granted a Life Membership by vote of a majority of the Executive Committee. Life Members are ineligible to hold office; however, they shall retain voting privileges. Life Members shall apply to the Executive Committee for designation after being notified by the Association for eligibility, and shall abide by the ICMA Code of Ethics once approved.
Nominations for Life Membership should be submitted to Rob Shepherd, NCCCM Program Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Nominations are due by January 15th. Please note that if a person does not qualify for the 25 years of active membership requirement, a written request can be submitted to the NCCCMA Executive Committee, via Rob Shepherd, for consideration.
