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. Successful completion of the CCI satisfies the education requirements specified by the International Institute of Municipal Clerks for designation as a Certified Municipal Clerk (CMC). It also satisfies the education requirements for designation by the NC Association of Municipal Clerks as an NC Certified Municipal Clerk (NCCMC) and for designation by the NC Association of County Clerks as an NC Certified County Clerk (NCCCC). Enrollment is open to municipal and county clerks, deputy clerks, and assistant clerks, as well as to those with equivalent responsibilities in regional government entities.
