From WMCA President Barbara Van Clake WCPC/MMC

Hello Wisconsin Clerks,

Finally, a beautiful Spring day in Wisconsin, especially after one dreary and long winter. The WMCA Board of Directors met on February 7, 2014 at the Comfort Inn in Plover, a cold day for a lot of hot topics to be discussed.

The Manuals Committee presented the board with updated drafts of Articles 1-12, Deposits Policy, Expense Reimbursement Policy and the Refund Policy for board consideration. These articles address the duties of the Executive Board Members. The Board went through the documents page by page and the proposed changes were discussed, corrections made and other items added or eliminated to more closely reflect how are association operates. Once these manuals are turned into General Code, they will go through the manuals and codify them as a free service to our membership.

The Board discussed the contents of our minutes and what they should contain so that they are more consistent as the Secretary changes from year to year. Through consensus it was decided to include the location, time, date, financial reports, attendance, and motions or actions.   read more>

My Clerk Story

  • Adopt-A-Clerk Program - We match new clerks with a seasoned clerk from the same type and size municipality.  Call on them when you have a question.
  • The Clerk’s Listserv (e-mail network) - an invaluable tool for communicating with over 600 other WMCA clerks instantly.  A place to ask questions and get quick answers.
  • The WMCA Clerks Manual - The Clerk’s manual is a practical and useful guide to the new Clerk and the old pros. It is a reference guide of the basic duties of a town, village or city clerk.
  • The Quill - the WMCA newsletter, published quarterly, available electronically on our website, is filled with up-to-date information about upcoming events, recent happenings and pertinent information for members.
  • Professional Education - from one-day workshops to a wide selection of classes during our three-day conference.
  • Certification - become a Wisconsin Certified Municipal Clerk and ultimately a Wisconsin Certified Professional Clerk
