Taft City Clerk recognized for 'completing demanding education requirements and has a record of significant contributions to their local government'

Taft City Clerk Yvette Mayfield has earned the designation of Master Municipal Clerk which is awarded by the International Institute of Municipal Clerks Inc.

IIMC grants the MMC designation only to those municipal clerks who complete demanding education requirements and who have a record of significant contributions to their local government, their community and state.

The International Institute of Municipal Clerks, founded in 1947, has 14,000 members throughout the United States, Canada and 15 other countries, and the mission of this global non-profit corporation is to enhance the education opportunities and professional development of its diverse membership.

"In light of the speed and drastic nature of change these days, lifelong learning is not only desirable, it is necessary for all in local government to keep pace with growing demands and changing needs of the citizens we serve," said IIMC President Stephanie Carouthers Kelly. "Your City can take immense pride in Yvette’s educational accomplishments and achievement of this milestone."
