Welcome to the NYS Association of City and Village Clerks Website
Our goals are to:
- Educate and increase the level of professionalism to better assist Elected Officials and the Community
- To maintain an educational forum for exchanging ideas, discussing common problems, and obtaining general information that will assist the membership;
- To foster cooperation between the members and others directly and indirectly affiliated;
- To assist New York Conference of Mayors develop and implement training for the Fall School Conference to better qualify members of this Association to carry out their responsibilities.
I am very proud and excited to be serving another year as President of our Association. I can’t believe a whole year has come and gone. The year proved to be very productive with the adoption of the Association’s new By-laws and the near completion of our new website. Please look out for an email blast letting you know when it’s ready for viewing.
I’d like to thank the staff of NYCOM and the NYS Comptroller’s Office for once again organizing and executing an exceptional training week in Lake Placid. As I have said in the past, 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.
The holiday season is upon us and with all that is going on in preparing for the holiday we sometimes get side tracked and forget to be thankful for what we have in our lives. I like to ask you all to remember to take a break from all the hustle and bustle and enjoy some quality time with your family and friends. Spread a little joy and kindness to those we know and don’t know. Maybe lend a helping hand to those in need. Who knows maybe by doing this, we can set an example for others and perhaps, just perhaps, someday there really will be peace on earth, goodwill towards all.
I wish you all a Happy, Healthy and Safe Holiday Season!
Pauline DiSanto, RMC
