Ohio Municipal Clerks Association
The Ohio Municipal Clerks Association advances the municipal clerk profession through education, networking and member benefits, which establishes clerks as experts in their field and leaders in the communities they serve.
To the right you will find the membership application for the Ohio Municipal Clerks Association. If you have been a member, I hope that you continue your membership as you already know the many benefits you receive from being part of this Association.
If you haven’t been a member of the Ohio Municipal Clerks Association, I encourage you to become a member. Give one year a try and if you choose not to continue your membership for future years, at least you will have gained knowledge that you didn’t have before about our Association. I can assure you that you will realize that we work as a team, and no one is out there alone trying to figure something out. We deal with day-to-day issues, as well as over the top issues that we never thought we would have to face or try to figure out. As a member you have access to other members throughout Ohio and what they have gone through and, many times, not have to recreate the wheel.
Being a member of this Association, you have access to so many educational opportunities. I have been surprised at the mayors and members of council where their clerks and deputy/assistant clerks are not members asking for information about the Association. More and more communities are moving toward requiring their council staff obtain their Certified Municipal Clerk and Master Municipal Clerk designation within a period of time after being hired or prior to being hired. Even if you are not interested in seeking these designations, you will still benefit from our networking, mentoring, and education.
As part of my speech when sworn in as President, I inserted a quote from Eleanor Roosevelt. “Since everybody is an individual, nobody can be you. You are unique. No one call tell you how to use your time. It is yours. Your life is your own. You mold it. You make it.” I believe this applies to our positions. Our positions simply cannot be compared to any other position in our municipalities. We are unique and we are an important part of keeping our municipalities running smoothly.
