PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE

WMCA President Susan Duncan, MMC

Welcome to the Washington Municipal Clerks Association (WMCA) website. WMCA is a non-profit, all- volunteer association. Thanks to our many hard-working volunteers, WMCA is able to provide quality educational events and networking opportunities for our members.

WMCA has resources and educational programs for clerks at all experience levels. It doesn’t matter whether you are brand-new to the clerk world, or if you’ve been in this profession for a decade or two, there is always something new to learn. WMCA is proud to support ongoing education of our members by hosting quality conferences and educational sessions, as well as providing numerous scholarship opportunities to allow as many of our members as possible to attend those events.

My theme for this year is “Life is Not a Dress Rehearsal.” Those of you who know me will not be surprised that I chose a theme that reminds me of the theatre, as I am obsessed with all things theatre-related. And how does the theatre relate to our world as municipal clerks?  As clerks, we are always “on stage.” We always have to be prepared. And just like in live theatre, we always have to expect the unexpected, we always have to be ready to improvise, and we need to be able to roll with unexpected things that just happen – and isn’t this past year a perfect example of that?! As author Marilyn Grey says, “Life is not a dress rehearsal. Stop practicing what you’re going to do and just go do it. In one bold stroke you can transform today.”
