The Shelby County City Clerks Association recently celebrated its 10th anniversary at its quarterly meeting at the Coal Yard Restaurant in Helena.
The group was founded by Chelsea City Clerk Becky Landers in December 2005 and has met quarterly since then to share information and experiences pertinent to the city clerk position.
Landers served as association president for three years, and Hoover City Clerk Margie Handley has been president for 2015. Other officers for 2015 were Landers as vice president, Helena City Clerk Amanda Traywick as secretary and Pelham City Clerk Marsha Yates as treasurer.
In 2016, Landers once again will serve as president, while Traywick will be vice president, Harpersville City Clerk Stacy Walkup will be secretary and Yates will be treasurer.
During 2016, the association will continue to meet quarterly, and Landers plans to have guest speakers to cover topics and training for the upcoming municipal elections, which will take place for all cities and towns in Shelby County on Aug. 23.
The next Shelby County city clerks' luncheon is scheduled for March 16 at the Chelsea Community Center on Shelby County 47.
