Our primary function is give municipal clerks across the province a forum to share information and ideas.
AMCA Mission Statement
The Alberta Municipal Clerks Association works to support and improve local government administration by:
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.
