    CMCA holds many educational seminars each year. Anyone is welcome to register. Enrollees in the International Institute of Municipal Clerks Certification Program will receive credit toward their certification for the hours they attend at CMCA sessions.

    CMCA annually plans Professional Development Opportunities (PDOs) throughout the state.  Many CMCA members are certified trainers who also teach as part of the CMCA Education Program. Additionally, the CMCA Education Committee plans and develops programs for the Colorado Municipal League’s Annual Conference in June; the Colorado Institute for Municipal Clerks in July, the Master’s Academy in July and for the Master's Winter Academy/Conference in November.

    SOS ELECTIONS Training:  Coordinated elections and IGAs

    Every November, the county clerk becomes the coordinated election official for the jurisdictions in the clerk's county.  This course covers the basics of what a coordinated election is and how it is similar to and different from a general election.  The course will go into depth on the laws and rules that govern coordinated elections. 

    Through small group discussions, activities, and instruction by the Secretary of state's office, participants will review the following topics:  property owner ballots, allocating costs, working with coordinating entities, placing issues and questions on the ballot, Intergovernmental Agreements (IGAs), and TABOR notices.  the course will end with exercises in legal writing and an opportunity to review your own IGA for ways to make improvements.
