  • The extraordinary thing that ICMA does is guide the contestants. It is not just giving away a certificate and bye bye. That's one of the most outstanding about ICMA. Last year I had an in-depth session with two of the mentors about the most useful production techniques and how to improve the quality of production which you typically don't get from anyone else.
