Greetings and Happy Fall!!
Can you believe the Fall Season is here? Before you know it the winter season and the holidays will be upon us. Where does the time go?
I am very proud and excited to be serving as President of our Association. Thank you for this opportunity. I’d like to thank the Executive Committee for their continued dedication and hard work and offer a special warm welcome to Bob Juliano (Village of Port Jefferson), our newest member of the Executive Committee, and congratulate him on being presented with the Clerk of the Year Award. I would also like to thank Past-President, Brenda McConnell (Village of Brownville) for the exceptional leadership she has provided over the past two years.
It was great seeing so many of you at Fall School in Saratoga this past September! This year we had 70 new attendees. A big thank you to the staff of NYCOM and the NYS Comptroller’s Office for once again organizing and executing an exceptional training week. The training and education received at this conference each year is invaluable; as well as the sharing of ideas with fellow clerks and enjoying the camaraderie with one another. I encourage all clerks to attend.
The Executive committee and I will be working throughout the year to continue to keep you informed on upcoming training opportunities, current events that may impact you and your municipalities and facilitating continued discussion among our members.
If anyone would like to serve on a committee or has suggestions, please contact any committee member.
Also, don’t forget to submit articles about events taking place in your community or a
“Spotlight on your Village” article to Jim Koury, our Bulletin Editor, at email@example.com for our newsletter. It’s always interesting to read about what is taking place in other communities around our State.
I look forward to the coming year and wish all of you a very Happy, Healthy and Safe Holiday Season!
