12 CHANGE SERVICE REQUESTED MPA Students Establish ICMA Chapter by Mark Ma!lon '14 This fall UNC MPA students launched our very own International City/County Management Association (ICMA) Student Chapter, with the help of faculty advisor Carl Stenberg and Orange County Assistant Manager Gwen Harvey '76, who serves as our ICMA Chapter Mentor. Members of the student chapter enjoy full membership in ICMA and access to many of its resources, such as online forums. In addition to the academic bene"ts, MPA students have the opportunity to network with professionals and learn more about careers in local government. The ICMA Student Chapter is o! to a good start. We currently have 16 members, and we helped organize a visit from Bob O'Neill, executive director of ICMA, on September 18, 2012. Listening to Mr. O'Neill was a great learning experience.
