The National Certified Public Manager® Consortium, formed in 1979, establishes and preserves standards for the Certified Public Manager® designation by providing and monitoring accreditation standards, facilitating program development, encouraging innovation and developing linkages with programs and organizations across the US and internationally. The Consortium is served by a board made up of representatives from each of the member programs.
The quality and efficiency of management in government have a major impact on the lives of citizens and the orderly functioning of society. Systematic training programs are essential to maintain and improve the effectiveness and professionalism of government managers.
Those earning the Certified Public Manager® designation are eligible to become a member of the American Academy of Certified Public Managers®, a national professional organization supporting public managers.
