This full-day course will strengthen clerks’ knowledge of major subject areas. For veteran clerks, it will provide a refresher on the basics as well as some in-depth discussion of specific areas of concern. New clerks will benefit from the broad-based discussion of the office of clerk, its duties, obligation and administration. Both will gain insights from an examination of statutory changes and modifications to state agency rules that affect the office of clerk. Topics include: Basics of the Position, Municipal Records and Freedom of Access Law, Clerk’s Records, Ordinances and Charters, Conflict of Interest, Elections, Basic Vital Records and Issuance of Licenses.
