Welcome to the Arizona Municipal Clerks Association

The Arizona Municipal Clerks' Association (AMCA) is a professional organization dedicated to providing assistance and opportunities for education, professional development, personal growth and leadership. 

Networking Opportunities – Members of the Association have the opportunity to meet municipal clerks from other jurisdictions throughout the State of Arizona who share common concerns and circumstances. This gives members a tremendous information resource by providing a network of informed individuals available for the exchange of ideas, experiences and perspectives.

Committees & Mentoring – AMCA has many opportunities for serving on various committees. Committee members apply annually and are appointed by the incoming President.

One such committee, the Membership/Mentoring Committee, provides a network between clerks and facilitates the exchange of information between clerks’ offices. The Committee assists clerks throughout Arizona, particularly those new to the profession or to the state, by sharing experience and information. The state is divided into regions with each region meeting periodically.  Representatives from each of the state’s regions serve as region leaders and provide the Membership/Mentoring Committee with its membership, along with a Chairman.

Educational Opportunities – In conjunction with the League of Arizona Cities and Towns, the AMCA conducts an election workshop each year to provide clerks with the training required to become a Certified Municipal Elections Official.  Participants must complete three years of the election certification program and receive a passing grade on a written examination in order to attain this designation. 

The AMCA Annual Conference is held in conjunction with the annual election workshop each year. 

Points for attending the election workshop are given toward certification through the International Institute of Municipal Clerks (IIMC), in order to obtain the designation of Certified Municipal Clerk (CMC) and/or Master Municipal Clerk (MMC).  More information regarding IIMC is included on the following page.

Mission – AMCA was founded in 1961. Our mission is to promote excellence and professionalism through support, communication and educational opportunities for each member. AMCA is committed to maintaining a high standard of leadership, respect, and integrity in all aspects of our operations and in our professional and business conduct. We strive to reflect the highest ethical standards in our relationships with members and provide educational and networking opportunities for the betterment and enrichment of the Clerk profession.
