County Municipal Clerks’ Association is an organization of clerks, deputy clerks and assistant clerks from one or two counties who meet several times a year for professional development, networking and educational activities. Associations are organized and administered by the municipal clerks in each county. The Maine Town and City Clerks’ Association serves as a resource for the county association, but each county association functions independently from MTCCA.
Most meetings are held in the evening with a dinner, followed by a business meeting and an educational presentation, featuring speakers on a variety of topics pertaining to the professional work of municipal clerks.
If your county does not have a group established and you would like to become involved in helping to start one, please contact Katherine Jones at 874-8677.
