Hello all you very special people,
I hope this message finds you all healthy and happy. Finally we are looking at leaves starting to pop out and we look forward to warmer weather. My thoughts go out to all the people affected by the terrible flooding.
I'm extremely happy to report our New York Municipal Clerks Institute (NYMCI) has been approved by the IIMC. With the direction of Dr. Michael Hattery and Patricia Cadrette the Rockefeller Institute of Government will be a wonderful place to further our education as municipal clerks. It will be held July 10th - 13th this summer. PLEASE consider attending as it proves to be a great experience both professionally and personally. Our Association will give out full scholarships to first year students and half scholarships to 2nd and 3rd year students. So please fill out the applications.
I am approaching my busy time as President with all the planning for our upcoming Fall Training School. We try to address everyone's concerns and interests as to what classes are offered. NYCOM and OSC continue to give us a great conference. I hope to see many of you there. Last year we had a record number of 1st timers and I hope everyone comes back.
As always feel free to contact me with any concerns you might have.
Enjoy the little things in life, for one day, you'll look back and realize they were the big things - Kurt Vonnegut
