Elkhart Mayor Rod Roberson Elected Vice-President
INDIANAPOLIS – At its annual meeting held last week in Bloomington, the Indiana Conference of Mayors (ICOM) elected Madison Mayor Bob Courtney president of the organization. Courtney took office immediately and will serve one year in the position.
“I am honored my peers have entrusted me to lead this organization. The collaboration and sharing of best practices we have within ICOM has been such an important part of my time as Madison’s mayor. In the year ahead we will continue this momentum, growing our first-class education program and advocacy among lawmakers and other stakeholders, to guarantee our cities have the tools we need to thrive as the state’s economic engines,” said Mayor Courtney.
Mayor Courtney succeeds Mayor Cathy Gross, Monticello, as ICOM President. Also in Bloomington, Elkhart Mayor Rod Roberson was elected by the membership to serve as the group’s vice-president. Both Roberson and Courtney took office in 2020.
Monticello Mayor and outgoing ICOM president Cathy Gross praised Mayor Courtney’s dedication to Madison, as well as all Hoosier communities. “Mayor Courtney has proven time and again that his passion for public service does not stop at Madison’s borders. He works tirelessly for his city and still finds time to accept volunteer leadership roles. His time spent on Governor Holcomb’s Commission on Public Health is a shining example of Bob’s commitment and the respect he garners among the highest leaders of our state,” said Gross.
Formed in 1998, the Indiana Conference of Mayors (ICOM), is an affiliate of Aim, the advocacy group for Indiana’s cities and towns. Its purpose is to give special focus on the needs and concerns of the elected chief executives of Indiana’s 120 cities.
