Professional Education

Through two decades of work with municipalities and regions, ICF has developed the Community Accelerator® Strategy - a method for speeding communities toward a thriving economic, social and cultural future in today’s digital economy. The Strategy offers a high-value framework for creating and managing the many policies, programs and partnerships you need to grow an innovative and inclusive local economy and an affirming culture that says "yes" to opportunity. 

We provide professional education to municipal leaders and community and economy developers in applying the strategy, based on the experience of more than 200 cities and regions around the world.
