One of the Association’s main goals is to
provide municipal elected officials and staff with the services that help them
most efficiently and effectively operate their municipalities. Municipal clerks
play a critical role in support of the mayor, city council and other
administrative positions. Clerks are frequently the city’s main contact and the
public’s access point to municipal services.
These demands on a clerk’s time may leave little
opportunity to participate in training away from the office. Therefore, these
training modules are designed to be an easily accessed online training resource
offered in segments of 30 minutes or less.
The modules are especially helpful to newly appointed clerks.
