Brenda M. Cirtin, Springfield city clerk since 1993, was elected vice president of the International Institute of Municipal Clerks last month during the organization’s annual conference in Reno, Nev. She will move into the role of IIMC president in May 2012.
Founded in 1947, the nonprofit IIMC has more than 10,000 members worldwide and is governed by a 26-member board of directors. Its members represent municipalities with populations ranging from 1,000 to more than 8 million. The organization offers educational opportunities in 45 higher-education learning centers, including a Certified Municipal Clerk program and Master Municipal Clerk Academy.
Cirtin, who has earned both the CMC and MMC designations from the institute, served on its board of directors for Region 7 – Illinois, Kansas and Missouri – 2005–08 and received the group’s highest honor, the Quill, in 2009.
In her role with the city, Cirtin’s duties include supporting the mayor and City Council, recording official minutes of council, board, commission and committee meetings, and coordinating municipal elections with the county clerk.[[In-content Ad]]
