City Manager Alonso Awarded Prestigious ICMA "Credentialed Manager" Designation

Miami Springs City Manager William Alonso was the recipient of some special good news just in time for the holidays – he has been designated a Credentialed City Manager by the Credentialing Advisory and Executive Boards of the International City/County Management Association (ICMA). Alonso is now one of over 1,400 local government management professionals currently credentialed through the ICMA Voluntary Credentialing Program.

“This recognition is in line with what we here in Miami Springs already know about William and the great job he is doing for our City.  It is just one more example of the leadership excellence he maintains on a day-to-day basis for the City and his staff. He takes the time to learn what he needs to know and always works hard to get the job done,” says Mayor Zavier Garcia.

To qualify for this prestigious designation, Alonso underwent a rigorous peer review credentialing process lasting several months that examined his education, management experience, adherence to high standards of integrity, and assessed his commitment to lifelong learning and professional development.  As a Credentialed Manager, he is required by the ICMA Code of Ethics to complete at least 40 hours of professional development every year.

Headquartered in Washington, D.C., ICMA advances excellence in local governance by promoting professional management worldwide and increasing the proficiency of over 9,000 appointed chief administrative officers, assistant administrators and other employees who serve local governments and regional entities around the world, from small villages and towns to large metropolitan areas.
