Exciting news for a special Sandite! The City of Sand Springs announced Tuesday morning that City Clerk Janice Almy has been named to the Board of Directors for the International Institute for Municipal Clerks (IIMC).
“I am greatly honored to be on the IIMC’s Board of Directors,” Almy said. “The role of municipal clerks is very dynamic as citizens and city officials increasingly seek more information and knowledge about their local governments.”
Almy has been a member of IIMC since 2004. She is also a member of the Oklahoma Municipal Clerks, Treasurers and Finance Officials Association. She has served in several officer positions with the association, and she received the Member of the Year Award in 2016.
“Janice is a true ambassador for local and state government,” said Sand Springs City Manager Elizabeth Gray. “She has made immeasurable contributions to the City of Sand Springs.”
A longtime City employee, Almy was appointed City Clerk in May 2012 after serving as Deputy City Clerk for 13 years. Her significant accomplishments in the position include creating and maintaining electronic databases for principal documents and coordinating an in-house recodification of City ordinances.
Almy earned her Certified Municipal Clerk designation in 2007 and her Master Municipal Clerk designation in 2015. She is also a member of the Government Finance Officers Association of Oklahoma, Oklahoma Municipal League and Oklahoma Municipal Court Clerks Association.
Almy will be sworn-in to the IIMC Board of Directors in May of 2017. Please join us in sending her a big “congratulations” for this honor!
