Hello CMCA Members,
In my last message to you, I stated this year was going to be a great ride! Here is it, only May, and the ride is getting better all the time. So many new and exciting educational opportunities are coming up and I hope that your municipality will support your attendance at some - or all of them. Look for more details in the May issue of the Communique newsletter.
I would like to take this opportunity to encourage all members to consider giving back to your association. There are so many opportunities for all members to contribute; please consider chairing a committee, becoming a trainer for the PDO’s or even a member of the executive board.
For those of you who may be new to the “clerk and/or finance” world, please feel free to reach out with any new ideas, comments or concerns. We have so many wonderful people to work with and so many amazing opportunities to share. I also encourage you to try and attend one of the CMCA board meetings throughout the year. The annual conference in Grand Junction in November will be the last combined conference with CGFOA, so please join us to celebrate and educate.
We are definitely shooting for the moon this year, and even if we don’t make it to the moon, we will still land among the stars. Not a bad place to be! Happy spring to all, hope to see and meet each and every one of you in the near future.
Let’s continue the ride together!
Rhonda B. Coxon, CMC
Town Clerk Snowmass Village
Please remember to reach out to your surrounding communities
and offer assistance to the new clerks in your area. Mentoring is a great way to learn and a way to build lifetime relationships.
