The KIPDA Municipal Clerks Association serves as the regional chapter of the Kentucky Municipal Clerks Association. The Association provides a forum for enhancing the capability and performance of the Municipal Clerks in the KIPDA region while also encouraging professional growth and career development. The monthly meetings allow Municipal Clerks from all areas of the region to share ideas, similar work experiences and takeaways, and to provide support systems for their members. The Association also secures support and provides integral information for elected local officials and serves as an information network among clerks within the KIPDA region as well as the Kentucky Municipal Clerks Association. The KIPDA Municipal Clerks Association is a professional organization dedicated to developing a thorough understanding and trust in municipal government. Their mission is aligned with the Kentucky Municipal Clerks Association in providing opportunities for education, professional development, personal growth and leadership as they pertain to the duties of the office of the Kentucky Municipal Clerk.

The KIPDA Municipal Clerks Association meets monthly on the first Wednesday of the month from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in the KIPDA Burke Conference Room. Membership to the KIPDA Municipal Clerks Association is open to any professional who is currently serving as a City Clerk or Assistant City Clerk within the KIPDA region. All meetings are open to the public.

KIPDA’s Community and Economic Development Division (CED) staff and the KIPDA Municipal Clerk Chairperson help facilitate the meetings and procure guest speakers for each month. Speakers and presentation topics differ widely to cover the wide range of service records and public documentation that the clerks help organize and maintain.
