White Springs town clerk Shirley Heath recognized

Jasper — White Springs town clerk Shirley Heath has earned her Master Municipal Clerk (MMC) designation from the International Institute of Municipal Clerks (IIMC), according to a recent press release.

The IIMC was founded in 1947 and is governed by a 26-member board of directors. It is a professional association with more than 10,000 members in the US, Canada and 15 other countries. Their primary goal is to promote continuing education and professional development of municipal clerks through extensive education programs, certification, recertification, publications, networking, annual conferences and research.

To qualify for entrance into the Master Municipal Clerk Academy (MMCA) one must have earned their Certified Master Clerk (CMC) designation by attending extensive education programs and have pertinent experience in a municipality. The program prepares the participants to meet the challenges of the complex role of the Municipal Clerk by providing them with quality education in partnership with 47 institutions of higher learning.

The MMCA is an advanced continuing education program that prepares participants to perform more complex municipal duties. The program has an extensive and rigorous educational component, a professional and social contributions component, and a commitment to lifelong learning. The Academy members must demonstrate that they have actively pursued educational and professional activities and have remained informed of current socio-political, cultural, and economic issues that affect local governments and municipalities.

“I am extremely honored to have achieved the Master Municipal Clerk (MMC) designation and to be a part of a great group of clerks dedicated to our profession,” said Heath. “The Florida Association of City Clerks and the International Institute of Municipal Clerks organizations offer quality education designed specifically for city clerks, and I am thankful that I have had the opportunity to take advantage of these training opportunities.”
