BRAND NEW IIMC Certification - Beginning July 1, 2023

Education PLUS Program (EPP) - An Overview

The International Institute of Municipal Clerks (IIMC) is committed to provide first class education to the clerk community.  To that end, IIMC has created a new program for those who are committed to lifelong learning for those who have already completed their MMC.  The certification requirements include an extensive and advanced educational component and a professional contribution component. 

Education PLUS Program is designed as an addition to the current education programs (CMC and MMC) and is not a designation. Members must possess an MMC in good standing to apply and earn all points (hours) according to the provisions outlined in the requirements put forth by IIMC.

These IIMC approved EPP courses are available through NEMCI.  The 5 courses listed below (and others) also serve as 1 MMC point.  Certificate of completion to read:  2 EPP hours or 1 MMC point.

The first scheduled EPP enrollment cycle (July 1, 2023 - July 1, 2025) requires 4 hours of Ethics and 4 hours of Diversity courses (details below) -  Each 2 hour course (OnDemand webinar) cost $60 and is accessed individually using credit card/ PayPal.

*******************************************************************************

The Education Plus Program (EPP) uses an "hour" basis tracking system rather than a "point" basis in contrast to the CMC and MMC designations. The EPP Program consists of a two-year scheduled enrollment cycle with 15 hours to be completed each year. The scheduled enrollment cycles begin on the first of the month and stops at the end of the scheduled month. Each cycle should contain the following:

  • 4 hours - Mandatory ethics training - first scheduled enrollment cycle only
  • 4 hours - Mandatory diversity, equity, and inclusivity training - first scheduled enrollment cycle only
  • Second cycle and forward members can select their 8 hours of education, leaving room for new topics on the horizon in higher education
  • All EPP courses must fulfill the requirements of the IIMC Education Guidelines.

NEMCI&A Purpose

The New England Municipal Clerks Institute (NEMCI) is an intensive program of continuing professional education for those in attendance. The purpose is to assist Clerks in developing and maintaining the high level of administrative expertise needed for the successful operation of increasingly complex municipal governments. Population changes, increased municipal responsibilities and extensive social and legislative changes have increased both the difficulty and importance of the Clerk's function. With increased responsibility comes a need for professional education to aid the Municipal Clerk in acquiring the necessary new skills and knowledge, while developing and strengthening those already in use. Over 500 cities and towns have sent Clerks to the New England Municipal Clerks' Institute and Academy.

 PLEASE NOTE:

The New England Municipal Clerks Institute program is a comprehensive education program for New England Clerks.  A division of the New England Association of City and Town Clerks (NEACTC), this program is open to members of NEACTC and beyond.   Additionally, NEMCI is certified by IIMC as an Institute which provides participants with 60 education points for obtaining IIMC’s Certified Municipal Clerk designation.   

 NEMCI’s online courses, both on-demand or webinar format, will not replace or count for any part of the  hours or education of the NEMCI Institute program.  Our Institute program is a set schedule and variety of courses and we do not allow for outside courses (even when offered by us) to count toward the total Institute hours.  The online courses offered by NEMCI are 1 CMC/MMC point for each two hours of class in the IIMC certification education points.
