About CCAC

Our Mission

Founded in 1977, the mission of the City Clerks Association of California (CCAC) is to promote the municipal clerk profession through education, support, and communication.


In addition to providing leadership and management training opportunities, enhancing levels of service responsive to the growing demands within our organizations, fostering proactive programs to promote effective legislation, and promoting networking among members, the objectives of CCAC are to promote:

  • The interests of municipal clerks.
  • Professional administration and education of municipal clerk offices.
  • Uniform standards for administering municipal clerk duties.
  • Improved standards of efficiency for municipal clerks.
  • Better municipal government through increased cooperation with other municipal officials.
  • Legislation which supports the goals and objectives of the organization.

On October 4-5, 2019, the City Clerks Association of California’s (CCAC) Board of Directors met to assess the current environmental landscape and develop a strategic plan. The strategic planning session resulted in identifying a vision for CCAC, core values, and three strategic goals under Governance, Branding / Communications, and Education.

The CCAC Strategic Plan (view here) includes the mission, vision, core values, and the three strategic goals CCAC will focus on in the next three years as well as the priority actions to accomplish those goals. The plan will be the foundation for the work of CCAC committees and will serve as the roadmap for ongoing strategic discussions.
