FLC-FACC Conduct Survey on City Clerks Office


The Florida League of Cities’ Center for Municipal Research conducted a survey of 292 municipal clerks in Florida regarding how the city clerk’s office is structured in their municipalities. The survey was conducted electronically from October 22 – November 15, 2019, with a response rate of 75% (or 219 clerks).

ADA Compliance Resources


The National Center on Disability and Access to Education has developed one-page accessibility resources, or "cheatsheets," to assist anyone who is creating accessible content. These free resources are catered to less-technical individuals, such as faculty and staff. There are "cheatsheets" for Microsoft Office, Adobe and more.

YouTube is also a helpful resource to search for training videos. For example, search the words "creating accessible word document (video)" and you get these videos. FACC is not endorsing or guaranteeing the legal veracity of this content.
