In September, nine local officials graduated from the Municipal Clerks and Treasurers Institute, a three-year program that provides municipal clerks and treasurers with the skills critical to their professions.
To receive their certificates, the graduates attended more than 120 class hours on topics such as financial management, overview of government, public administration, conducting meetings and the role of the municipal clerk.
During the September session, Beverly Julian, clerk for the Town of Eutawville, received a three-year scholarship to attend the Institute. The scholarship is underwritten by the Municipal Association and is available only to South Carolina Municipal Finance Officers, Clerks and Treasurers Association members.
