The Institute for Local Government (ILG) staff serves an integral and vital role in advancing the organization’s mission, vision, and program area objectives.
The Institute receives staffing services through a contract with the League of California Cities.
When we have employment opportunities, they will be listed on this page and at www.cacities.org/Top/About-Us/Careers. Individuals interested in exploring employment with ILG should watch these pages for specific information.
The Institute is in the process of developing a special fellowship program for graduate students in public administration (or a related field) who are interested in local government careers. The program is still under design but will likely involve inviting selected MPA students working in California local agencies to come to Sacramento for a week to learn more about how local government relates to the state.
The internship program honors the career and commitment of Don Benninghoven, who has been involved with the Institute in several capacities: as a League of California Cities staff member, as the League’s executive director, as the founding executive director of the Cities-Counties-Schools Partnership, and until 2009, as an Institute board member.
The Institute is in the process of raising funds to support this fellowship program on an ongoing basis. To inquire about the present status of funding for fellowships or making a contribution to honor Don’s public service and help fund the fellowship program, contact JoAnne Speers.
