Study Abroad Program
The purpose of the program is to provide a unique educational and cultural experience for IIMC members with an evaluation of practical and academic studies. While the emphasis of this program is on education, the itinerary attempts to provide a good balance of touring the host country while interacting with the local government officials and attending educational sessions.

We thank the Municipal Clerks Education Foundation (MCEF) for their grants, making the programs possible.

2015 Education Program Itinerary and Descriptions

Assessment
In order to earn points toward the CMC or MMC Designation, participants must completed the required learning assessment. This assignment will consist of a 250 word essay for each session attended outlining the knowledge/experience gained during the session and how that knowledge will be useful to your municipality. Assessments will be due within 45 days of the completion of the program. Participants who have obtained the MMC designation are not required to complete the assessment.

IIMC understands that some participants have already obtained their MMC designation and do not need the points.  However, if you are interested in writing an essay or keeping a blog during the trip, IIMC would love to review it for consideration as an article in the News Digest or on our Facebook page.  Please send it to our Director of Member Services, Janis Daudt at .
