IIMC Clerks Certification Institute

The 2022 Clerks Certification Institute (CCI), which runs for 20 days over a year, provides instruction in subjects involving the core responsibilities of municipal and county clerks. This cohort will be offered in a hybrid setting with both on-line and in-person students.  The topics covered include the open meetings law, the public records law, ordinance authority and adoption, local government board procedures, agenda preparation, meeting minutes, public notices, oaths of office, quasi-judicial proceedings, and many others.
