David Frasher received his legal education from the Washington University School of Law. Currently serving as City Manager of Hot Springs, Arkansas, David Frasher is credentialed by the International City/County Management Association (ICMA).

In keeping with its mission of advancing professional local government worldwide, ICMA established its voluntary credentialing program, which aims to recognize professional local government managers who are deemed to be qualified based on a combination of relevant education, adequate experience, adherence to ethical principles, and a commitment to lifelong professional development. Those who pass the peer review credentialing process receive the title “ICMA Credentialed Manager,” which is granted by the ICMA Executive Board.

There are many benefits to being an ICMA Credentialed Manager. First, the title-bearer will be a recognized professional local government manager whose unique expertise has been quantified and who demonstrates adherence to the highest ethical standards. Moreover, it provides a sense of community by allowing a peer review of the title-bearer’s professional activities and learning. The title can also provide a gateway to eligibility for the Legacy Leaders Program, as well as access to workshops and other training specially designed for ICMA Credentialed Managers.
