Certified County Clerk Designation

39 Earn North Carolina Certified County Clerk Designation

The North Carolina Association of County Clerks to the Boards of County Commissioners is pleased to announce the launching of a state certification program for North Carolina Clerks to Boards of County Commissioners, Deputy Clerks and Administrative Aides to Regional Councils of Government. Organized in 1976 for the purpose of providing “…an opportunity to exchange ideas and techniques which may be used in the performance of Clerks’ duties...,” the Association has broadened its focus over the years to enhance the effectiveness, efficiency and professionalism of its members through ever increasing means. At the outset, pioneers in the profession recognized the importance of being knowledgeable about current and proposed local, state and federal legislation. Continuing education has been a priority of the Association and through collaboration with its partners – the University of North Carolina School of Government, the North Carolina Association of County Commissioners, and the International Institute of Municipal Clerks – members have had access to numerous training opportunities.

The new certification program, developed with the assistance of the UNC School of Government (SOG), will be administered by the SOG. Following completion of the required training, experiential and examination components, the NCCCC (North Carolina Certified County Clerk) designation will be conferred upon members who achieve the qualifications.

Thirty-nine Clerks, representing 35 North Carolina counties have currently qualified for the program, and were recognized at the 2010 Annual City and County Clerks School at the School of Government in January.

For more information on the program, see the NCCCC Brochure.
