Credentialed Government Leader (CGL)

CGLLogosmallThe Credentialed Government Leader (CGL) program is available to MMANC members. Space is limited, so submit your application today!

The CGL program provides foundational tools, experiences and connections designed to develop participants’ knowledge, self-awareness and skill set. The program is designed to build the management and leadership skills of analysts, mid-managers and other members who have at least three years experience in a government organization in a qualifying position.

Members applying for the credentialing program will gain an unbiased assessment of their current skills, knowledge and interests through an assessment survey. Each participant will have a mentor from the Cal-ICMA Coaching Program (others may be acceptable). The mentor and participant will collaborate to develop an education plan.

The credential requires completion of eight (8) pre-approved training opportunities Рfive core areas and at least three electives (see Program Coursework). Workshops will be offered throughout the state to maximize coursework availability for participants. For more information on credentialing, visit Steps to Credential.
