ALBANY, N.Y. (March 25, 2020) — The University at Albany’s nationally ranked Rockefeller College of Public Affairs & Policy will be hosting Certified Municipal Clerks (CMC) and Master Municipal Clerks (MMC) training programs this summer, running July 12-15, 2020 on UAlbany’s campus.
Clerks seeking professional certification through the International Institute of Municipal Clerks (IIMC) as well as other municipal officials seeking professional development are welcome to participate.
“We are proud to partner with New York State Town Clerks Association and New York State Association of City and Village Clerks to create a Municipal Clerks Institute for New York,” said Karl Rethemeyer, Dean of Rockefeller College. “Through programs like the Institute and degrees that prepare students for service in local government, the College is committed to making sure that citizens of New York are served by highly trained professionals at the local level.”
“As part of its broader mission, Rockefeller College is committed to supporting the public service workforce through a variety of education and training programs,” said Institute Director Eugene J. Monaco. “Supporting the Municipal Clerks Institute is a prime example of Rockefeller College’s commitment to this goal.”
The CMC program is designed to enhance the job performance of clerks in small and large municipalities. The program prepares applicants to meet the complex challenges of municipal clerks by providing them with quality education in partnership with institutions of higher learning, as well as state and national associations.
The MMC program is an advanced continuing education program that prepares participants to perform complex municipal duties. The program has an extensive and rigorous educational component and a professional and social contribution component.
