[ARCHIVED] Sequim City Manager Receives Credentials from the International City/County Management Association

SEQUIM—Sequim City Manager Charlie Bush recently received the Credentialed Manager designation from the International City/County Management Association (ICMA). Bush is one of more than 1,300 local government professionals currently credentialed through the ICMA Voluntary Credentialing Program.

To receive the prestigious ICMA credential, a member must have significant experience as a senior management executive in local government; have earned a degree, preferably in public administration or a related field; and demonstrated a commitment to high standards of integrity, lifelong learning and professional development.

“This is a well-deserved credential for Charlie,” said Sequim Mayor Dennis Smith. “We are indeed fortunate to have a City Manager of this caliber serving the City of Sequim.”

Bush has served as the City Manager for Sequim since August 2015. His prior experience in Washington included time with the City of Issaquah, the City of Prosser, and the City of Bellevue. He began his career as a Management Intern with the City of Glendale, AZ and then spent three years with the Community and Economic Development Department at the City of Phoenix, AZ. He holds a Master’s Degree in Public Administration from Syracuse University’s Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs and a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Political Science from Wittenberg University. Bush is also a graduate of Leadership ICMA, Leadership Eastside, and the Senior Executive Institute at the University of Virginia. His management and leadership style focuses on three key areas: People First; Leadership Everywhere; and Results Matter.

ICMA’s mission is to create excellence in local governance by promoting professional management worldwide and increasing the proficiency of appointed chief administrative officers, assistant administrators, and other employees who serve local governments and regional entities around the world. The organization’s nearly 9,000 members in 27 countries also include educators, students, and other local government employees.
