“This event features a weeklong series of activities aimed at increasing the public’s awareness of Municipal Clerks and the vital services they provide for local government and the community.” (source, PDF)

“The true worth of the Municipal and Deputy Clerk is often not realized,” said IIMC President Sharon K. Cassler, MMC, Clerk of Council in the City of Cambridge, Ohio. “But Clerks perform some of the principal functions of the democratic process.” (source, PDF)
