Celebrating Municipal Clerks Week 2020

Each year we take this week to celebrate our Municipal Clerks! Municipal Clerks play a vital role in the democracy of our government and we are thankful that they take their public service duties seriously. They serve their communities with great attention to detail and passion for the work they do. Happy 51st Anniversary!

IIMC has sponsored Professional Municipal Clerks Week since 1969. In 1984 and in 1994, Presidents Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton, respectively, signed a Proclamation officially declaring Professional Municipal Clerks Week the first full week of May and recognizing the essential role Municipal Clerks play in local government.

Municipal clerks are family to us! We will continue to support you by facilitating this information to learn from each other, pivot to the “new normal,” and prepare for the future – together.

If you would like to learn about how other clerks are managing the COVID-19 crisis and response, our 2020 survey summary is available for download.
