Managers in Transition Program

Member-In-Transition Program

CMAO provides a Member-In-Transition (MIT) service for city managers and administrators who are members of our association.


The program provides a support system for MIT members during periods of transition between public sector management positions. A combination of direct and indirect assistance is designed to assist the member personally and professionally while in a transition status.


A member-in-transition is an individual whose last professional position held was in the local government sector and he/she was a City Manager or Administrator and a Full Member in good standing. The member must be actively seeking employment by pursuing local government positions throughout the state and/or in other states. Members will continue to be considered a MIT for up to 12 months following loss of employment or until accepting full time employment, whichever occurs first.

Support System

CMAO board members who are aware of a member in transition in their district will contact him or her to remind the member of the MIT program. We also have a member-in-transition committee who will assist MIT's in their district.
