BATON ROUGE – Jamie Liner, the certified municipal clerk for the Town of Golden Meadow, has become one of three Louisianans participating in this year’s Louisiana Municipal Clerks Institute Advanced Academy to earn a new designation – Louisiana Master Municipal Clerk.

Liner earned the prestigious LMMC designation upon completing the institute advanced academy, fulfilling education and experience requirements, and participating in membership and leadership activities in the Louisiana Municipal Clerks Association and other organizations.

The 37th Annual Academy of the Louisiana Municipal Clerks Institute was held on October 21-25 at The Embassy Suites Hotel in Baton Rouge. LMCI is a week-long continuing education and professional accreditation program for municipal clerks and assistant clerks seeking to work on their basic and advanced certification efforts. The institute provides workshop sessions, peer networking, and interaction with other municipal clerks.

This year’s institute included sessions on ordinances, resolutions, motions, and proclamations, internal controls and fraud prevention, social security and Medicare coverage, effective leadership, understanding and writing successful grant applications, social media, municipal budgeting deadlines, electronic filing systems, parliamentary procedures, tax millages, pipeline safety, and the basics of being a clerk.

This is the fifth year that the Louisiana Municipal Association has cosponsored the institute with the Louisiana Municipal Clerks Association, in conjunction with the Department of Communication Studies at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette.
