The Dade City/County Management Association (DCCMA) was established in 1965 to bring together local government professional administrators to stimulate the highest standards of public service and administration and to promote good fellowship and closer intergovernmental relationships.
The primary objectives of the Association are to participate as an organization in community problem solving, to advocate the principles, standards and Code of Ethics of the International City/County Management Association (ICMA), and to actively influence and participate in the Florida City and County Management Association and the International City and County Management Association activities.
On January 19, 2001 the membership adopted changes to its by-laws, including changing the Association's name to the Miami-Dade City and County Management Association (MDCCMA). All persons accepted into membership of MDCCMA are bound and agree to abide by the ICMA Code of Ethics. The By-Laws establishing the Miami-Dade City and County Management Association were adopted on February 26, 1965 and subsequently amended on May 17, 1971, March 11, 1983, March 15, 1991 and January 19, 2001.
