Hello Clerk Family,

A big thanks to everyone who participated in the Virtual 2020 County Clerk’s Conference held on September 10th and 11th and to all who contributed to its success!  It was well attended and provided Clerk’s with great educational sessions and a MUCH needed opportunity to reconnect.  A huge thanks to NCACC and the School of Government for all of their hard work in bringing this together in such a short amount of time.

As we head into fall, please keep the Annual November City and County Clerk’s Academy dates in mind.  The School of Government will host the Academy in a virtual format and it will be held on November 19th and 20th.  Likewise, the New Clerk’s Academy, to be held on December 10th, will also be held virtually.   Leadership for both Associations are working on the details and more information will be coming soon! 

The Clerk’s Certification Institute (CCI), which runs for 20 days over a year, is scheduled to begin on February 15-19, with the second week scheduled for May 17-21, 2021.  The August and October 2021 dates are still to be determined.  Please visit the School of Government’s CCI Course Page for more information.

Mark your calendars for the 2021 Annual County Clerk’s Conference, to be held next April 21-23 at Wrightsville Beach in New Hanover County.  I would like to thank our gracious hosts - Kym Crowell, Clerk to the Board of New Hanover County and Melissa Long, Clerk to the Board of Pender County, for their willingness to host and for their ongoing work in pulling all of this together.  

Lastly, if you haven’t done so, please remember to submit your NC Association of County Clerks Membership Application for the 2020-21 fiscal year.    The Membership application period runs through September 30th and annual dues are $55.  The membership application is now available online – Click here to access it.

I want to thank all of you for what you do for the Association and for your counties.  Thank you for forging ahead and providing leadership and knowledge to your communities during these uncertain times! 


Donna S. Buff, President, NC Association of County Clerks
