The Municipal Clerks and Treasurers Institute graduated four participants at its fall meeting. Vernel Sanders, municipal clerk, City of New Ellenton; Angie Overton, clerk/treasurer, Town of Williston; Sue Woods, clerk, City of Liberty and Barbara Swierszcz, treasurer, Town of Clover all received certificates at the Institute's spring meeting.
Also during the fall Institute, Denise Dyer, finance and human resources director for City of Pickens, received a three-year scholarship to attend MCTI. The scholarship is sponsored by the Municipal Finance Officers, Clerks and Treasurers Association.
MCTI is a three-year program designed to provide municipal clerks and treasurers with the skills critical to their respective professions. To receive a certificate, participants attended more than 100 hours of classes in the role of the municipal clerk, financial management, management skills, overview of government, records management, public administration, election administration, conducting meetings, personal development, personnel management and municipal law.
The Institute is approved by both the International Institute of Municipal Clerks and the Municipal Treasurers Association of the United States and Canada. Completion of MCTI satisfies the education requirements for certification from both groups.
MCTI is co-sponsored by the Municipal Association of South Carolina, the Municipal Finance Officers, Clerks and Treasurers Association, and the University of South Carolina's Institute of Public Services and Policy Research.
