Town Clerk Diana Vachon is now a Certified Municipal Clerk (CMC), as awarded by the International Institute of Municipal Clerks.
This designation is granted to municipal clerks who complete education requirements and who have a record of significant contributions to their local government, their community and state.
“Earning the reputable CMC designation is a milestone,” said Vachon. “The program offers educational opportunities that help clerks better serve their constituents. These opportunities help me make decisions every day from how best to serve the person at the counter, understanding and apply complex municipal regulations, to planning for an election. I’m so grateful for every opportunity to grow that supports our community. Shelburne is an amazing place to live, work and raise a family. I want to do my part, to the best of my abilities, to help our community thrive.”
The International Institute of Municipal Clerks, founded in 1947, has 14,000 members throughout the United States, Canada and 15 other countries. Its mission is to enhance the education opportunities and professional development of its diverse membership.
“In light of the speed and drastic nature of change these days, lifelong learning is not only desirable, it is necessary for all in local government to keep pace with growing demands and changing needs of the citizens we serve,” said Stephanie Carouthers Kelly, president of the International Institute of Municipal Clerks. “Your city can take immense pride in Diana’s educational accomplishments and achievement of this milestone.”
