Brendan’s Briefing: June 26, 2017

Here are the latest announcements!

What’s New?

1. CU Denver’s ICMA Student Chapter
The purpose of the International City/County Management Association Student Organization is to provide opportunities for students to network and learn about careers in local government.  The University of Colorado Denver has started a new student chapter and we are seeking new members to join. ICMA membership is free for students who join — a tremendous value as professionals in the field pay a significant fee for membership. If you’re interested in joining CU Denver’s student chapter, please email Jeff Bello.
