Clerk of Council Eileen Boeing Completes Certified Municipal Clerk Program

Post Date:07/18/2019 3:33 PM
Leesburg, VA (July 18, 2019) – The Town of Leesburg is  pleased to announce that Clerk of Council Eileen Boeing recently met the requirements to earn the Certified Municipal Clerk (CMC) professional designation which is designed to enhance the job performance of the clerk in small and large municipalities. 

In order to earn the CMC designation, a Municipal Clerk must attend extensive educational programs in addition to pertinent experience in a municipality. The program is administered through the International Institutes of Municipal Clerks (IIMC) in order to prepare applicants to meet the challenges of their complex role by providing  quality education in partnership with institutions of higher learning as well as State and National Associations. The CMC program has been assisting clerks to excel since 1970.

Boeing said her certification took two and a half years to complete and required a total of 110 credits, divided between education and experience. 

“It has given me the foundation to understand this role better,” Boeing said. “It has definitely been a great experience and a great network. Everyone was very open when teaching the ropes and I feel better equipped to do my job having gone through this certification program. No two days are the same in the Clerk’s office.”

Boeing joined the Town of Leesburg in January 2017. Her daily duties include supporting Council activities, Board and Commission support and regulatory compliance.  She is also responsible for supervising and maintaining the permanent record of all Town resolutions and ordinances and preparing and distributing agendas, legislation, minutes, motions, listings, and notices among other tasks. Boeing also serves as the Freedom of Information Officer and the Records Officer for the Town.

Boeing said she continues to admire how well the Town supports its employees and the ever-changing culture. She hopes to continue her education by completing the Master Municipal Clerk Certification in the near future.
