The Fall 2021 Delaware Municipal Clerks Institute is a 40-hour program consisting of seven and a half session days: September 10, 17 (half-day/afternoon only), 24, and October 1, 8, 15, 22, and 29. The Institute will be hosted virtually through Zoom.
In partnership with the International Institute for Municipal Clerks (IIMC) and the Virginia Municipal Clerks Association (VMCA), the VCU Office of Continuing and Professional Education offers a rigorous continuing education program for IIMC members and associate members.
The IIMC-approved Institutes and Academy program provides administrators who serve a Legislative Government Body (LGB) the tools required to make sure that public meetings, public records, elections and special projects operate smoothly. The IIMC assigns points to our Institute and Academy education contact hours (one point per two hours). You can use these pre-approved hours toward your Certified Municipal Clerk or Master Municipal Clerk credential designation.
