City Clerk Elevator Speech

During Goal Setting, the CCAC Board created a committee tasked with promoting the City Clerk profession.  One of their ideas was to create an elevator speech / business card to be used by all of us as a tool for defining our role when asked “What is a City Clerk?”

"The City Clerk is the local official who administers democratic processes such as elections, access to city records, and all legislative actions ensuring transparency to the public.  The City Clerk acts as a compliance officer for federal, state, and local statutes including the Political Reform Act, the Brown Act, and the Public Records Act.  The City Clerk manages public inquiries and relationships and arranges for ceremonial and official functions."   

The elevator speech / business card was unveiled at the 2010 CCAC Annual Conference in Ventura.  Those who attended were able to pick up preprinted cards.  For those of you who did not attend, or who would like to modify the card, it is available below for your use.  Feel free to customize the card in a way that best represents you and help us in promoting our profession.
