City Clerks and Municipal Finance Officers Association of Kansas

The PPMC (Public Policy and Management Center at Wichita State University) has managed CCMFOA (the City Clerks and Municipal Finance Officers Association of Kansas) and conducted their professional development series since 1991. 

There are two main professional development initiatives:

  1. The Kansas/IIMC Municipal Clerks Certification Institute and the Master Municipal Clerks Academy: This program is for all municipal clerks and their office staff in Kansas. The courses offer theoretical and practical guidance in public administration, social and interpersonal concerns, and special topics. Both programs take place during the same week in November and are accredited by the IIMC (International Institute of Municipal Clerks.)
  2. CCMFOA Annual Spring Conference: This conference provides professional development opportunities to City Clerks across the state of Kansas. These sessions are also approved by IIMC for additional education points that allow clerks to continue their work toward professional designations.
