A Message Of Support From IIMC President Pamela Smith

Posted on September 29, 2022 at 11:23 AM by Karen Lee

The Board of Directors of the International Institute of Municipal Clerks joins all IIMC members in conveying its deep concerns and support for Floridians impacted by Ian, which is among the most powerful storms to strike the United States in decades. Damaging winds and heavy rains have caused power outages and property damage for millions of households stranded from care and basic resources. 


As Ian moves north and additional storms grow strength this hurricane season, IIMC stands with its members, their families, and the communities they serve.


Thank you.

A Message Of Support From IIMC President Pamela Smith

Posted on August 24, 2022 at 11:30 AM by Karen Lee

The Board of Directors of the International Institute of Municipal Clerks joins all IIMC members in conveying its deep concerns and support for those impacted by the recent and ongoing natural disaster in Texas, Arizona, West Virginia, Nevada and several other states and other countries. The rain, monsoons and flooding have harmed and displaced countless people, wreaking havoc on lives and depriving thousands of basic resources.


In the weeks and months ahead, as communities come together to secure immediate needs for their residents, IIMC encourages its members in those affected areas to persevere and know that as Municipal Clerks and in times such as these, you are looked upon as more than leaders in your respective communities.


Thank you.
