In response to suggestions from our members and to support our ongoing workforce initiative, GMA is asking city managers to let us know whether they are interested in being shadowed by an MPA student.
GMA works with several universities in the state of Georgia as part of its Local Government Practicum
. The shadowing program would expand this cooperation and serve as a valuable learning experience for students. More importantly, this may be an opportunity for a city to recruit talented individuals to work in local government.
After indicating your interest in participating via the form below, GMA will forward your contact information to our participating universities. If a student contacts you in response to your application, you may discuss all further details of the shadowing experience (such as start date, duration, and frequency) directly with the student.
