Clerks ... The Measure of Success
Welcome New Clerks!
Are you a new clerk, feeling a little overwhelmed with all you have to learn? Or are you a clerk with at least three years' experience who is willing to take a new clerk under your wing? The North Carolina Association of Municipal Clerks has just what you need. We Share Our Services (WSOS) Mentoring Program matches new clerks with experienced clerks in cities and towns of comparable size and with similar duties for a year of mentoring. These clerk mentors are willing, ready and able to share their expertise with those who are new to the world of clerks. Help is just a phone call, fax or e-mail away.
Mentors can help new clerks with a variety of questions or concerns dealing with agendas, minutes, ordinances, resolutions and many other clerk responsibilities. In order to serve as a mentor you must have at least three years' experience as a municipal clerk or deputy clerk and be committed to offering moral and professional help when needed.
If you are willing to serve as a mentor/volunteer or if you are a new clerk who would like to have a mentor assigned to you, please complete the WSOS Mentor/New Clerk Interest Form. Completed forms should be returned to: Susan Powell, Town of Mills River, 124 Town Center Drive, Mills River, NC 28759 or firstname.lastname@example.org .
If you're a new clerk, we hope you will take advantage of this wonderful service. If you're a clerk with experience, we hope you will consider serving as a mentor.
