The Institute is open to all City and Town Clerks, Deputy or Assistant Clerks, as well as their staff in the United States and Canada. Clerks, Deputies, Assistants and Clerk's staff are given first preference for attendance. Other municipal employees may attend pending space availability. To be eligible for certification, participants must attend all classes.
Your fellow students will be your professional counterparts from large and small communities. Together you will exchange concerns, problems, solutions and even some hilarious laughs. From this sharing, warm and lasting friendships will emerge. The graduation ceremony, reception and banquet will be held on Thursday evening, providing yet another opportunity for sharing the professional pride that comes with professional development.
We want to congratulate the class of 2017 for successful completion of the Institute Program. Names of past graduates are posted on the New England site.

A CMC (Certified Municipal Clerk) certification is a distinction granted by the International Institute of Municipal Clerks to Clerks who have completed three years of full attendance at a recognized Institute (such as NEMCI) and/or fulfilled other educational and non-educational requirements. You must also have been a member of IIMC for a minimum of two years to qualify for your CMC certification. A MMC (Master Municipal Clerk) certification recognizes high level achievements beyond the attainment of CMC designation. This is the highest designation issued by IIMC and is granted to clerks who have completed IIMC's MMCA (Master Municipal Clerk's Academy). This is an extensive program which has a rigorous educational component, a professional and social contribution component, and a commitment to lifelong learning. The Academy offers an opportunity to pursue this MMC designation through professional development and personal growth. For further information on CMC or MMC, contact IIMC at www.iimc.com.
