- Custody of the official seal and execution of official documents
- Financial Management
- General Management

- Meeting Administration

Additional Full Members
Additional Full Members are fully qualified members from the same organization. This would essentially be Deputy Clerks within the same city, but could be other individuals provided they would qualify under the definition of full member. A city must have one full member before they would be eligible to have additional full members.
Associate Members are individuals serving a legislative body in a capacity not previously defined. In other words, if someone serving a legislative body does not qualify for full membership they would be able to join as an associate member. Associate members have the right to vote, BUT CANNOT hold office or obtain certification, but they can take advantage of education programs and should they eventually assume the job of Clerk or Deputy, they could then apply for certification. A full member who is in transition (between jobs) would automatically become an associate member until they re-assume the position of Clerk. Associate members also pay a lower fee.
