Why Choose Professional Management?

MCMA continues to build momentum for professionally managed local governments—to demonstrate and promote the “performance dividend” of professional management. 

Professional managers, much like executives running private sector corporations, bring together the leadership, vision, and focus on results needed to create better communities by:

  • managing financial and human resources;
  • delivering services;
  • planning strategically for community development;
  • using performance metrics systems to drive continuous improvement; and
  • committing to high ethical standards.

Missouri cities have a variety of options for establishing professional management in their communities.  If your community is interested in establishing professional management, please contact any MCMA Executive or Board Member.
