Join for City Secretary Support and Networking
Our TexasMunicipalClerks Yahoo! Group is an excellent resource for Texas municipal clerks/city secretaries and other municipal officials or employees connected with the city clerk's office and interested in obtaining the Texas Registered Municipal Clerk certification. Since 2000 this question-and-answer electronic mailing list and internet forum has been a great resource for peer support, assistance, and mentoring. The Texas Municipal Clerks office also periodically makes TMCA and TMCCP annoucements to the group.
It is not necessary to register with Yahoo! in order to participate in Yahoo! Groups. The basic mailing list functionality is available to any email address, but a Yahoo! ID is required to access most other features.
Our Yahoo! Group is moderated by the TMCA Technology Committee:
Chair Melinda Welsh, TRMC, City Secretary, Friendswood
Sara Copeland, TRMC, City Secetary, Andrews
Michelle Hicks, TRMC, City Secretary, Lacy Lakeview
Gladis Sanchez, TRMC, Records Specialist, La Porte
Please contact any of our moderators if you need assistance with your subscription.
