ICMAtv made its debut in San Antonio at ICMA's 92nd Annual Conference in 2006. The popular program will return to San Antonio for the 103rd ICMA Annual Conference, October 22-25, 2017.

ICMAtv will once again highlight examples of local government leading practices, innovation, and leadership excellence. The four days of programming will feature interviews with key speakers and leaders, news and color commentary from the conference floor, thought leadership films from private and federal government organizations, and prerecorded films highlighting innovative communities. Episodes will be screened throughout the Henry B. González Convention Center, as well as in select guest hotels and online. 

Stephen Horn, ICMAtv executive producer, has worked through the United States and the United Kingdom, notably as a producer for the BBC. Says Horn, “We are very excited about ICMAtv. The shows are an opportunity to bring conference attendees, ICMA members, and other people with an interest in local government closer to the current issues that affect them.”

In addition to being featured in the daily ICMA TV conference programs aired onsite, on,  and on the ICMA YouTube channel, communities that chose to develop a pre-recorded segment find that the final films make outstanding promotional or informational pieces that can be used to showcase their community or for outreach, fundraising or partnership proposals, marketing, recruitment, and other purposes.

If you are interested in creating a film segment, contact Sally Nelson at WebsEdge at, and WebsEdge staff will create a customized proposal and cost structure for you based on the content and complexity of your project. If you choose to participate, a dedicated WebsEdge producer will work closely with you to produce the film of your choice. Your community will retain the rights to reproduce and copy your segment for future use. 

If you have questions about ICMA's partnership with WebsEdge, contact Michele Frisby at ICMA,
