Our Partners

 
Brailsford & Dunlavey partnered with ITGA to conduct an annual survey about the unique issues and opportunities facing universities and their host communities. The goal is to collect valuable information that will help identify model projects in campus communities. This information will lead to identifying 'best practices' in college towns.     
   
International City/County Management Association (ICMA): ITGA & ICMA signed an affiliation agreement that will help advance the strategic goals of the organizations through membership development, information sharing and other services related to the advancement of good local governance and the importance of fostering strong relationships between institutions of higher learning and the communities in which they reside.  
   
National League of Cities: (NLC): The ITGA & NLC have an affiliation agreement that will contribute to the greater success of both organizations in the areas of membership development, professional development, information sharing, and other services related to the advancement of good local governance, the awareness of the value of professional local government management, and the importance of fostering a strong relationship between institutions of higher learning and the communities in which they reside.     
   
Off-Campus Partners is a sponsor at the annual ITGA conference.
   
The Michigan Municipal League & Elected Officials Academy: Through the MML, graduates of the Certificate in Town Gown Relations program may earn credit toward completion of Levels One, Two, or Three in the Elected Officials Academy program.   
   
The Responsible Retail Forum (RFForum) and the ITGA have announced a new strategic partnership for promoting responsible alcohol sales in college and university communities. The new program will be based on RRForum's successful efforts to help alcohol beverage licensees comply with laws barring alcohol sales to underage and intoxicated customers, and to enhance cooper-ation among alcohol, producers, distributers, and licensees, law enforcement and licensing commissions, and other public health and saftey stakeholders seeking to address alcohol-related problems in the community.  
The ITGA seeks strategic alliances with national and international organizations, corporations and other non-profit organizations with similar missions. If you would like to discuss partnership opportunities, please contact Beth Bagwell at Beth@itga.org.
