MLGMA is the professional association for local government managers from cities, villages, counties and townships throughout Michigan.

In addition to selecting Young as president and Kerbyson as president-elect, the organization elected the following to serve new roles and terms on the board; Ottawa County Assistant Manager Keith Van Beek as vice president; and as trustees, Kalamazoo City Manager James Ritsema, Saginaw County Controller Robert Belleman, and Zeeland Assistant City Manager Karen Doyle. Also, Kingsley Village Manager Mitchell Foster was appointed to the board to fill an unexpired term.
