City Clerks

WHAT’s New In the City Clerks Department:

We have been working with the Region VIII (AZ, CO, ID, MT, NE, NV, NM, ND, SD, UT, and WY) International Institute of Municipal Clerks (IIMC) Directors about starting a South Dakota IIMC City Clerk Association.  We will be communicating with other South Dakota and North Dakota City Clerks and Finance Officers on training opportunities and potentially starting a SD/ND City Clerk Institute Program.  The association and institute will be very beneficial for South Dakota's clerks and finance officers.
