City clerk joins elite organization

Angela Peterson, CMC, South Lake Tahoe city clerk, has been accepted as a member in the Master Municipal Clerk Academy. The academy is the professional body of municipal clerks who have continued their level of educational achievement beyond the attainment of the prestigious Certified Municipal Clerk Award.

IIMC President Ranette Larsen, MMC, Garland, Texas, city secretary, said, “I am honored to welcome Mrs. Peterson as a member in the Master Municipal Clerk Academy. She is dedicated to municipal service and an inspiration to all members of our profession.”

To become a member of the academy a person must first attain the IIMC Certification designation, attend a minimum of 36 hours of graduate courses at an IIMC recognized municipal clerks institute or complete similar education programs relating to the responsibilities of the municipal clerk’s office. Specific professional participation must be achieved, such as leadership in national and state associations, attendance at seminars and conferences and professional writings and accomplishments. To date, approximately 15 percent of 10,000 members of the International Institute of Municipal Clerks have qualified for the Master Municipal Clerk Academy status.

Peterson has been employed with the city of South Lake Tahoe since March 1983 and currently serves in the position of city clerk. She worked as a temporary employee for the city from 1979 to 1983. She completed the Municipal Clerks Institute conducted by the School of Public Affairs, Advanced Executive Program, Arizona State University, Tempe, Ariz., and received her Certified Municipal Clerk designation in March 1996. She has completed IIMC-approved academy programs offered through Arizona State University, the City Clerks Association of California and the League of California Cities.

Active in professional and civic affiliations, Peterson is a member of the City Clerks Association of California, Northern California City Clerks Association, South Lake Tahoe Cancer League and Soroptimist International of South Lake Tahoe. She has been a member of the International Institute of Municipal Clerks since February 1989 and joins 78 other active municipal clerks in the state of California who have received the prestigious Master Municipal Clerk Academy designation.
