About Us

The Alberta Municipal Clerks Association

The Alberta Municipal Clerks Association is made up of government employees who have the responsibilities of a municipal clerk, assistant municipal clerk, returning officer, or election officer.

Our primary function is give municipal clerks across the province a forum to share information and ideas.

  • We hold an annual conference in April. It will be held in Canmore in 2016, 2017 and 2018.
  • We hold an annual education event each fall on a topic selected by the members.
  • We offer an Question Forum feature that allows our members to poll the entire membership about bylaws, policies, software packages, job descriptions, and any other topics that happen to cross our desks.
  • We provide information about legislation, job opportunities, events, and resources.

  • providing opportunities for information sharing among our members,

AMCA History

Alberta City Clerks were meeting informally for many years before the association was established. The initial focus of these meetings was for city clerks to provide input to Alberta Municipal Affairs on the new City Act, voting techniques and election procedures.

As time went on, the association became an active member of the municipal community.  We incorporated under the Societies Act in 1975 as the Alberta Association of City Clerks and Election Officials. The original members of the association were from eight Alberta cities: Calgary, Edmonton, Lethbridge, Medicine Hat, Red Deer, Grande Prairie, Wetaskiwin and Camrose. The association’s name changed to the Alberta Municipal Clerks Association in 1999, and membership was amended to include all Alberta municipalities, both urban and rural, regardless of population.
