Spotlight: Municipal Clerks Honor Roll 2019



2019 marked the return of the Municipal Clerks Honor Roll. Communities and municipal staff across the country stepped up to nominate an exemplary Clerk they felt deserved to be honored for going above and beyond for their respective communities.

The Municipal Clerks Honor Roll returned for the first time
in ten years to coincide with the 50th Anniversary celebration of Municipal Clerks Week
as designated by the International Institute of Municipal Clerks. The response
was resounding. Nominations poured in from across the country. By the time the
nomination period ended, 228 submissions were received.

A total of 150 Clerks were honored by their peers,
co-workers, and constituents. Each nominated Clerk received a letter of
congratulations that contained the name(s) of the person(s) who nominated them,
a certificate of honor, and a commemorative pin.

Some Clerks received multiple nods, and the top three
combined garnered 42 nominations! We’re delighted to spotlight Winsome
Citarella of Brookville, New York, Elizabeth Dreaper of Dobbs Ferry, New York,
and Eileen Birch of Union, New Jersey. Here’s what they have to say about the
Municipal Clerks Honor Roll and being named as honorees.

I am very proud and honored to have been selected for the 2019 General Code Municipal Clerks Honor Roll.  I can’t thank General Code enough for recognizing the Village Clerk’s position and our commitment to excellence.
