For those of you that do not know me, let me start by introducing myself. My name is Sue Clements-Dallaire, and I am the City Clerk in Auburn, Maine. I’ve worked for the City of Auburn since 2007 and have proudly served as the City Clerk since 2012.
The purpose of the Maine Town and City Clerks’ Association is to increase the proficiency of Municipal Clerks and other local government officials, to strengthen the quality of local government through professionalism, and to promote recognition of the importance of the office of the Municipal Clerk.
We’re a strong organization with approximately 850 members that include municipal clerks, deputy clerks, and assistant clerks throughout the state of Maine. Some are new to the profession, and others have years of knowledge, service and experience. For those of you that are not members of the Association, we encourage you to join! The opportunities and benefits are numerous.
I’ve been a member of the Maine Town and City Clerks’ Association since 2010. I’ve had the privilege of serving on the Executive Board, and various committees since 2014. In doing so, I’ve benefited in so many ways. I’ve learned a lot, I’ve gained confidence in myself and my abilities, and it has helped me to become a better Clerk. It has also given me the opportunity to meet so many of you, and I have gained some wonderful friendships over the years. It has also been a way for me to give back to this wonderful Association that I’ve benefited so much from.
We have approximately 20 working groups and committees within our Association with some of the most dedicated professionals serving on those committees. They volunteer their time to provide us with educational opportunities, to promote the profession, to keep us informed, to advocate for us, to recognize our achievements, and so much more. If you’ve never served on one of our committees or working groups, reach out and volunteer. You will be glad that you did.
I hope you find this website useful. It is the hub for Maine Clerks to find all sorts of information, whether you are looking for information for certification, committee information, if you are a member, you may want to review minutes of the Executive Committee meetings, or maybe you are looking for a mentor. It is all here at your fingertips. Please take advantage of this useful tool. Also, please know that we are always open to your comments and suggestions. Maybe there is something you would like to see added or want to share in idea or suggestion that might enhance the site. We welcome your input.
In closing, I want to thank you for entrusting me to serve as your President for 2023. I am honored to serve such an incredible and dedicated group of professionals. Please feel free to reach out to me anytime at email@example.com or 333.6601 ext. 1126.
