Monticello, NY – Sullivan County Manager Josh Potosek has earned the International City/County Management Association’s (ICMA’s) prestigious Credentialed Manager designation.

ICMA is the premier organization of professional local government leaders building sustainable communities to improve lives worldwide. The organization provides technical and management assistance, training, and information resources in the areas of performance measurement, ethics education and training, community and economic development, environmental management, technology, and other topics.

Only 1,353 governmental leaders – and just one out of every five county managers/administrators throughout New York State – have earned this credential. To be eligible to receive it, an individual must be a full member of ICMA, adhering to the ICMA Code of Ethics and its rules of enforcement as a requirement of membership. The designation indicates that a member is qualified by a combination of education and experience, adherence to high standards of integrity, and a commitment to continuous learning. To maintain the credential, members must submit an annual report describing 40 hours of professional development during the previous year.

“I am honored and gratified to receive this recognition from ICMA, of which I’ve been a member since 2008,” said Potosek. “It is deeply important to me to sustain the highest standards of professionalism in the service of Sullivan County’s residents, businesses and employees.”
