Setting Our Course

Welcome New Members

Lou Bunch, CMC, NCCMC, just celebrated her 6th year as a Municipal Clerk.  She began her career with the Town of Nashville in 2015 as the Town Clerk/HR Manager and remained in that role until April 2020.  Now, she serves as the HR Director/Deputy Town Clerk and is in her third term on the Association’s Finance Committee.  She has also served on the Program & Education Committee as well as the Certification Committee. 

“I would say that what I value most about being a Clerk is the support system.  One of the many things that Clerks are great at is being there for each other.  When I have had questions or needed something quickly, I knew my Clerk family would be there to pitch in with an answer or a suggestion,” she said. 

Before becoming a Clerk, Lou spent time in the banking industry (where she met her husband of almost 17 years, Dylan), as well as for the State of North Carolina Department of Public Safety.  Lou and Dylan have three (3) children Riley (15), Sydney (13), and Jacob (12).  In her spare time, Lou enjoys dancing with her daughter in their local dance troupe. 

When asked why she would recommend a new Clerk join the NCAMC, she said, “I would recommend that a new clerk join NCAMC so that they can start building the foundation any Clerk needs to succeed. It all starts with having great people that you can rely on, and through NCAMC, you are able to meet Clerks from all over the great State of North Carolina. My Clerk family has kept me going more than they will ever realize!”
