Subject: RE: [CPEO-MEF] ICMA - AMSC - local community linkages

Regarding the ICMA Military Communities Consortium (MCC) described here:

"MCC, along with ICMA's other military programs, support local 
government officials by working to strengthen the relationship between 
the military and the community.  Local governments and  
installations benefit from having the resources and knowledge about 
future land use planning, best management practices, technical 
assistance, information sharing, and environmental problem solving to 
make informed decisions.  Additionally, ICMA is committed to laying 
the foundation for mutually beneficial exchanges of resources and 
nowledge to further promote professional management and the benefits 
that come from having well-run, well-organized local governments and 
military installations."

Is this a new capability/project?  How is it supposed to work?  Is the 
MCC in active contact with local governments near military sites?  Are 
local non-profits assisting/included in notifications?

This sounds like an admirable project.  Let's hope there is some
correspondence between ICMA and local groups as well as the United 
States Army Management Staff College (AMSC).  It is our belief that many 
community groups don't have the capacity to stay engaged with local 
military organizations, because of all the other activities in need of 
attendance. Help lends hope!

Be well,
