55th Annual Professional Municipal Clerks Week

Celebrating the Backbone of Our Communities: Professional Municipal Clerks Week
As we step into the 55th Annual Professional Municipal Clerks Week, it’s a perfect time to appreciate the vital role that municipal clerks play in our communities. This week, celebrated this year from May 5th to May 11th, is dedicated to recognizing the indispensable contributions of municipal clerks and the profound impact they have on local governance and community well-being.

What is Professional Municipal Clerks Week?
Professional Municipal Clerks Week was first celebrated in 1969, spearheaded by the International Institute of Municipal Clerks (IIMC) and has since been embraced across the United States, Canada, and 15 other countries. This observance serves as a week-long opportunity to highlight the essential services municipal clerks provide to local government and the community.
Municipal clerks are the keepers of official records, the coordinators of elections, and the first point of contact for citizens seeking assistance and information. They ensure the transparency and integrity of governmental processes, facilitating the flow of information between local governing bodies and the public. Their work is foundational to our democratic systems, ensuring that our communities are run efficiently and effectively.

Why Do We Celebrate?
Celebrating Professional Municipal Clerks Week is not just about recognizing the individuals in these roles; it’s about acknowledging their dedication and tireless efforts in administering duties that are crucial for our communities to thrive. Municipal clerks oversee a myriad of responsibilities that are pivotal to local governance—from maintaining fiscal records and managing public inquiries to conducting local elections and legislative services. This week honors their commitment and resilience which often go unnoticed.
