  • Sector-recognized AMCTO accreditations
  • Enrollment in the AMCTO mentorship program
  • Annual AMCTO membership & related benefits


  • CDPs are offered at a 25% discount off the market rate annually for each package component

  • CDPs encourage municipal organizations to recognize employee/leadership development as part of succession planning
  • Enrollment in CDPs demonstrates employer commitment to employee growth and professional development

CDPs are offered through three different streams, each tailored to municipal staff at different stages of their professional careers:

  • Early Career Stream: ideal for those who have recently started in the municipal sector
