Florida Association of City Clerks 

Promoting and Developing the Educational and Professional Status of Florida City Clerks

About FACC

In 1972, a Broward County City Clerk encountered unique problems in his office and sought assistance in solving them from neighboring clerks. Upon inquiry about a state organization of fellow professionals that could be of assistance, and finding none existed, Sunrise City Clerk Robert Clark, CMC (now deceased) planted the seed that blossomed into the creation of a common forum for the profession known as the Florida Association of City Clerks (FACC). FACC now has more than 600 members representing most of the 411 cities in the State of Florida.

Organizational Structure
FACC's Board of Directors consists of an Executive Board (President, President-Elect, Vice President and Immediate Past President) and seven District Directors representing the Northeast, Northwest, Central East, Central West, South, Southeast and Southwest regions of Florida. The Board sets policy and provides organizational leadership and guidance. The Vice President automatically assumes the office of President. Other Board members are elected annually by voting members and ratified at the annual FACC Summer Conference and Academy.
Additionally, FACC has several committees to offer guidance and suggest direction to the Board of Directors. These include Awards and Scholarships, Budget, By-Laws and Manual Revisions, Summer Conference and Academy, Fall Academy, Membership, Mentoring, Nominating, Investment Advisory, Legislative, Professional Education and Resolutions.

The objectives, as adopted in the 1972 Constitution, included:
  • to discuss problems of mutual concern,
  • to increase the efficiency of the city clerk's function,
  • to cooperate with and assist all city administrators,
  • to strive for greater educational standards for city clerks, and
  • to gather and disseminate information to improve procedures and the efficiency of the administration of municipal government

  • Provide information on current legislative changes related to the duties and responsibilities of municipal clerks
  • Continue to solicit and utilize input from municipal clerks in regards to educational seminars provided at institutes and conferences
  • Encourage the Mentoring Program by ensuring contact with each new municipal clerk from an experienced clerk for guidance and information
  • Membership Committee and District Directors work together to contact the members who have not renewed membership
  • Promote the role of the municipal clerk in the administration of government through continuous education of management, elected officials and the public as to the value of municipal clerks as professionals
  • Provide education/training opportunities for municipal clerks that improve the quality of management in government 

To meet the ever-changing educational needs of the city clerk, the FACC partners with the following organizations:

Along with these partners, FACC is able to provide enhanced and catered educational opportunities to all Clerks. Summer Conference & Academies and Fall Academies are moved throughout the state to ensure convenience and participation by all Clerks. In addition, quarterly webinars on timely topics offer a convenient way to gain continuing education without travel.

Attendance and participation in the FACC enables a Municipal Clerk to achieve the prestigious designation of Certified Municipal Clerk (CMC) and ultimately achieve the Master Municipal Clerks (MMC) certification.
