The LCP and International County/ City Management Association (ICMA), a Washington-based international association of local government professionals, are in partnership in fostering technical professional exchanges between the two local government associations.
One of their specificactivities is the LCP – ICMA Professional Fellowship Program, through the Young Southeast Asian Leaders’ Initiative (YSEALI), which is sponsored by the US State Department. LCP is assisting ICMA in screening young local leader applicants and in conducting pre- and post-departure learning activities.
As of today, the said Program has sent 11 fellows to the different US local governments.The fellows immersed into their host local government’s different programs and developed community action plans to be applied into their regular work in the Philippines.
In line with this, to ensure that our Program covers the widest coverage, we humbly seek your request to encourage your constituencies/ local employees to apply in the next round of Legislative and Governance and Environmental Sustainability fellowship for Spring 2016.
