South Burlington City Clerk/Treasurer Donna Kinville recently completed her third year of studies at the New England Municipal Clerks’ Institute at Plymouth (NH) State University. Year three is the final year of the Institute program, continuing its emphasis on public relations, parliamentary procedure, decision making, personal development, management, computers, public speaking and professionalism.
Year three culminates in a banquet and graduation ceremony at which these clerks who successfully completed the three year Institute program receive their certificates. Completion of the three-year Institute program entitles graduates to apply for the International Institute of Municipal Clerks’ coveted Certified Municipal Clerk (CMC) designation.
The New England Municipal Clerks Institute is a three-year program which assists clerks in developing and maintaining the high level of administrative expertise needed for the successful operation of increasingly complex municipal governments.
