MINTURN — Michelle Metteer, economic development coordinator for the town of Minturn, has graduated from the Colorado Institute for Municipal Clerks.
During graduation exercises in July at the University of Colorado at Boulder, Metteer was awarded her graduation certificate by Kerry Bush, president of the Colorado Municipal Clerks Association.
The Colorado Institute for Municipal Clerks is designed to develop the knowledge and skills of municipal clerks. The training provided enables them to assist local government in providing services to its citizens and in meeting future challenges.
The institute requires 120 student-instructor contact hours consisting of classes in public administration, finance, intergovernmental relations, management, communication, leadership and job specific skills such as records management, office administration, written communication, election administration and liquor licensing.
Many municipal clerks who complete the institute program use it for credit toward their certified municipal clerk designation offered through the International Institute for Municipal Clerks.
