Clerks Institute

MAMC Basic Institute is designed to enhance the job performance of clerks in small and large municipalities and is recommended for clerks seeking the Certified Municipal Clerk (CMC) Designation. The CMC designation and the knowledge garnered from this substantive and relevant curriculum are of great benefit to the individual and the respective local governmental unit as a whole.

The Michigan Association of Municipal Clerks encourages continued education and professional training for members through the Michigan Municipal Clerks Institute (MMCI). The MMCI offers programs specifically tailored to the needs and requirements of the municipal clerk’s office, and completion of the program satisfies the educational requirements for the Certified Municipal Clerk (CMC) designation awarded by the International Institute of Municipal Clerks (IIMC).

The MMCI consists of three 1-week sessions with a minimum of 40 hours of classroom instruction per session. The program is sponsored by MAMC in conjunction with Central Michigan University and is held at the Comfort Inn in Mt. Pleasant in March of each year. The instruction and coordination of classes is contracted through a private vendor.

In an effort to promote professional knowledge and growth and avail to all members the valuable conference experience, the MAMC offers an Annual Conference Scholarship. These scholarships will be offered to members whose municipality does not financially support conference participation and is otherwise unable to procure funding.

As a comprehensive educational and networking experience, the MAMC Annual Conference provides invaluable opportunities for the municipal clerk who may be restricted from participating by a lack of funding.

The Scholarship is for the conference registration fee only. Following are the criteria for awarding an Annual Conference Scholarship:
