Vincent Buttiglieri, President of the International Institute of Municipal Clerks, has announced that Tara Shaw, Plympton’s Town Clerk, has earned the designation of Certified Municipal Clerk (CMC), which is awarded by the International Institute of Municipal Clerks (IIMC) Inc.
IIMC grants the CMC designation only to those municipal clerks who complete demanding education requirements and who have a record of significant contributions to their local government, their community and state.
The International Institute of Municipal Clerks, founded in 1947, has 10,300 members throughout the United States, Canada and 15 other countries, and the mission of this global non-profit corporation is to enhance the education opportunities and professional development of its diverse membership.
Buttiglieri said, “In light of the speed and drastic nature of change these days, lifelong learning is not only desirable, it is necessary for all in local government to keep pace with growing demands and changing needs of the citizens we serve. Your town can take immense pride in Tara’s educational accomplishments and achievement of this milestone.
“On behalf of the IIMC Board of Directors, I am honored to endorse the conferring of CMC to Tara J. Shaw, CMC of Town of Plympton. We share your pride in this achievement and we applaud your support of the role Tara plays in your town.”
