IIMC Online Professional Development Program

2024 OPDP Calendar Opens in new window

IMC proudly brings you the “Online Professional Development Program” for 2023. The purpose of the online professional development program is to enrich our learning community by creating a learning platform to develop skills appropriate to the workplace for municipal clerks that supports a diversity of thoughts, perspectives, experiences, and honors identities (including race, gender, class, sexuality, religion, ability, etc.). We are especially committed to increasing the representation of those municipal clerks who might not otherwise participate in professional development opportunities.   

We hope you will take advantage of these new and exciting courses brought to you via Zoom Webinar. We look forward to seeing you there!

ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY - IIMC has a zero-tolerance policy against unprofessional commentary in the online forum and reserves the right to remove any registrant, at any time, for any such violations.

Living in a state without an Institute or Academy, I’d been challenged to get the required points for my CMC. I accomplished this (pre-COVID) by travelling from Pennsylvania to New Jersey, Virginia, and New York to attend their programs. To supplement these programs, I often participated in local programming that was NOT guaranteed for CMC or MMC points and it’s difficult to gauge my progress never knowing if points will be awarded.

The online professional development courses offered by IIMC provide a way to continue my education and accumulate predictable points as I work toward my MMC. In addition, the topics are very timely and apply to all clerks regardless of location. The presenters are awesome and the courses are engaging.
