Letter from the President – Fall 2018

Happy fall y’all!!

First and foremost, let me express to all who have endured the hardships caused by Hurricane Florence my heartfelt sorrow. It is my hope and prayer that you and your communities have all the resources you need. We had quite a lot of flooding here in Moore County, but we feel very blessed knowing other areas have experienced much worse. You remain in our hearts!

On a happier note, I have been so ready for the cooler weather; I’ve been making pumpkin spice lattes at home since before Labor Day! We are in the midst of our fall regional academies as the season changes and I hope you all registered! Onslow County Clerk Julie Wand has been very busy helping her community get back on its feet following the storm, but has graciously offered to remain the host for the eastern regional, which has been rescheduled for December 7, 2018. Trey and the Program Committee put together a great day of learning and fellowship, and we cannot thank Julie and our other hosts (Paula Seamster, Caswell County and Donna Buff, Gaston County) enough for their hospitality and willingness to host in addition to all of their other duties!

The Program Committee has also been busy planning for our annual conference to be held March 20-22, 2019, in Pitt County. The agenda is shaping up nicely and it will be a great event that I hope everyone can attend! I know host Kimberly Hines will welcome us warmly to Greenville and the facilities will be perfect.

While speaking of the Program Committee, I would be remiss not to acknowledge Alamance County Clerk Tory Frink who volunteered to chair the committee while Vice President Jason Robinson recovered from surgery. She jumped right in and got the job done and did it well. Thank you, Tory, and all of our outstanding Program Committee members! Jason, we are so glad your health is being restored and we look forward to seeing you and your family soon!

I will be in Chapel Hill in late October to congratulate the newest Clerk Certification Institute graduates and invite them to join our awesome Association if they haven’t already. If there are any new clerks who would like to be linked up with a seasoned mentor, please let me know and we’ll make it happen!

As you are aware, Trey is trying out a new schedule for our annual city/county clerks academy, so instead of meeting in January for the master academy portion, it will be offered Friday, November 30 at the School of Government, or as a live webinar. I hope you will be able to take advantage of this opportunity as well, and I appreciate the online option for those who are unable to travel. Thanks, Trey!

Here’s to pumpkin spice and everything nice this season! I hope everyone is blessed as we head into the holidays and that you know how thankful I am for all of you and the opportunity to serve our Association.
