Message from the President
The New York State Town Clerks Association was founded in 1982 and our mission remains the same today as it was 30 years ago. NYSTCA officers, along with 20 District Directors work to support, encourage, and provide continuing education for Town Clerks and Deputies across New York State. District Directors also serve as liaisons to our State Agencies, bringing members important information and representing our interests.
In our efforts to promote education, NYSTCA hosts three Regional Meetings (October, December, and March) and our Annual Conference (April) each year. Attendees will not only receive a top-notch educational experience, but will gain much more in networking with other clerks. Members also receive The Recorder, our quarterly publication containing news from around the State and columns written by State Agency officials containing relevant information. You will also have access to the “members only section” of the website. Several $500 scholarships have been set aside promoting education and all you have to do is apply. These are only a few of the advantages to being a NYSTCA member.
Membership is only $75 per year and I encourage any Town Clerk who is not a member to join today. Please take a moment to explore our website and contact an officer if you have any questions. We are hosting our 31st Annual Conference April 28-May 1, 2013 at the Historic Hyatt Regency in Buffalo, NY. I am really excited about this venue and we will be placing an emphasis on technology in our offices. Our mixer theme is “Back to the Future.” The 1950’s or 2050’s…use your imagination for our kick-off event on Sunday. Registration packets will be mailed in early January, so make sure to include funds in your budget to attend. The New York State Town Clerks Association is “31 Years Strong” and counting!
