Lumbreras elected ICMA regional chair
Thursday, October 1, 2015 by Elizabeth Pagano
Yesterday, Assistant City Manager Bert Lumbreras was elected to a three-year term as Mountain Plains regional vice president of the International City/County Management Association. According to a press release about the election, “ICMA’s mission is to create excellence in local governance by promoting professional management worldwide and increasing the proficiency of appointed chief administrative officers (i.e., city, town, and county managers), assistant administrators, and other employees who serve local governments and regional entities around the world. The organization’s more than 10,000 members from 37 countries also include educators, students, and other local government employees. … As one of 18 Vice Presidents, three of whom are elected from the organization’s Mt. Plains Region (which includes Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Idaho, Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, and Wyoming), Mr. Lumbreras will represent ICMA to state associations of local government management and maintain relationships among other affiliated organizations. The Mt. Plains Region is one of five ICMA regions in the U.S.; three Vice Presidents are also elected from countries outside the U.S.” Lumbreras has been an assistant city manager in Austin since 2006, and has served in various local governments for more than 30 years.
