Per WCMA bylaws "Any Voting Member who leaves active service with a local government may retain their status as a Voting Member provided the member continues to pay dues, except that dues payment may be waived by the Executive Director because of resignation or removal from the member's position with a local government thereby becoming a member-in-career-transition. Voting membership continuity may be allowed if there has been no violation of the ICMA Code of Ethics which caused the removal from the position. Dues will be waived for up to three fiscal years."
WCMA has resources available to Members in Career Transition. These resources are detailed in the WCMA MICT Guide
