When the local government manager's position becomes vacant, someone is bound to be tapped to serve in an "e;acting"e; or interim capacity. Often the acting manager is selected from within the organization, and he or she is suddenly faced with an unfamiliar set of roles, responsibilities, and expectations. Acting Manager's Handbook offers many excerpts from local government plans and working documents that serve as examples you can build upon. The ICMA Task Force on Serving as an Acting Manager developed this collection of information and advice to help the acting manager make the most of a sometimes unexpected opportunity.
