Carol A. Hulka, Fruitport Charter Township, awarded Certified Michigan Municipal Clerk (CMMC) designation

Fruitport Charter Township – Carol A. Hulka, Clerk, was recently awarded the Certified Michigan Municipal Clerk {CMMC) designation by the Michigan Association of Municipal Clerks (MAMC). The CMMC program was launched in January 2014 to encourage City, Township, and Village Clerks to seek continuing education specifically related to the duties of Michigan Clerks. MAMC believes a focus on education is essential for municipal Clerks to provide informed, quality leadership for their communities in the face of constant legislative change and increased demands on Michigan’s public servants.

A Clerk must invest in a minimum of 120 hours of educational programming over three years to qualify for certification, and must continue to obtain education points to maintain the certification. Whether elected or appointed, municipal Clerks serve a powerful role in coordinating public programs and influencing legislative initiatives. Clerk Hulka is to be commended for the hard work, perseverance, and commitment expended to attain CMMC certification and the dedication to providing quality service to the public and the municipality they serve.
