The South Carolina Municipal Clerks and Treasurers Institute gained six new graduates this March. MCTI is a three-year program providing municipal clerks and treasurers with skills critical to their profession.
The spring 2020 graduates are Lisa Chapman, City of Easley; Sarah Johnson, City of West Columbia; Barbara Junior, Town of Brunson; Crystal Parker, City of West Columbia; Marlene Rollins, City of Johnsonville; and Patricia Salley, Orangeburg County.
Graduation from the program requires participants to complete more than 120 hours of classroom instruction on topics such as business license management, accounting and municipal law.
Completion of MCTI satisfies the education requirements for the certifications offered by the International Institute of Municipal Clerks as well as the Association of Public Treasurers of the United States and Canada. Those seeking IIMC's Certified Municipal Clerk designation also need to complete a capstone project. MCTI is scheduled as six sessions, each taking place over 2 ½ days. Participants can begin the program at any point and are encouraged to attend sessions consecutively.
