North Carolina County Clerks Association
Letter from the President – Summer 2019
Hello Clerk Family,
Wow!! Summer is flying by this year. It is hard to believe that August is here and kids will be going back to school soon (as well as teachers as I am often reminded).
With summer winding down, it is time to start thinking about our fall regionals. I am so very, very excited about our locations this year and our educational programs. Vice-President Donna Buff and the program committee have been hard at work over the last month or so getting our sessions ready. I really can’t thank the members of the program committee enough for all of the work they do. Every year we are blessed to have such great sessions and presenters. Our Eastern Regional will kick things off this year on Friday, September 13 in Pasquotank County. This regional will be co-hosted by Camden, Currituck, and Gates Counties as well and we will all get to enjoy the northeastern part of North Carolina. The Piedmont Regional will be hosted by Guilford County and will be held on Friday, September 20th. The Western Regional will wrap up our regional tour this year in Cleveland County on October 4th. The regionals are a great chance to come and network with your fellow clerks. The regionals are usually well attended and I look forward to seeing everyone there!
Don’t forget about our business meeting at the North Carolina Association of County Commissioners Annual Conference in Greensboro this year. More updates will be forthcoming at this meeting as I believe we are ready to announce our annual conference sites for the next two years. I have already mentioned that Cabarrus County Clerk Lauren Linker and Davidson County Clerk Debbie Harris have agreed to co-host the annual conference in Cabarrus County for 2020. At the meeting in August we will let everyone know where our annual conference will be held in 2021 as well. I would like to say thank you to all the clerks who are such willing hosts for our events. I for one look forward to seeing all parts of North Carolina and I would encourage anyone who would like to showcase your county or region to host an annual conference or a regional.
Enjoy the last few days of summer and get ready for the cooler weather of fall that is just around the corner! Thank you all for everything that you do for the association. I am so blessed to be able to be associated with such wonderful people!!
J. Jason Robinson, President
North Carolina Association of County Clerks
