FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE The International Institute of Municipal Clerks recognized City Clerk Emeritus Brenda Cirtin with its Honorary Membership award on May 18 at its annual conference in Hartford, Connecticut. This class of membership is reserved for persons who have made a significant or exemplary contribution to the municipal clerk profession or who have been instrumental in providing a major legacy to the mission of IIMC. "As I stated at the presentation, I have been incredibly blessed during my 27-year career as a municipal clerk – both in Jefferson City and in Springfield," Cirtin said. "IIMC was committed to ensuring that I had the appropriate education and training to meet the challenges of this profession. I am grateful for their diligence and I am deeply honored at being awarded this designation." Upon retirement or assumption of positions other than municipal clerk, IIMC past presidents shall be presented to the board of directors for consideration of honorary membership status. The board of directors by a two-thirds vote of board members confers honorary memberships. In Cirtin’s case, the vote was unanimous. Cirtin, who will retire from the City of Springfield in August after more than 22 years of service, served on IIMCs board of directors from 2005 to 2008 and was IIMC president from 2012 to 2013. In 2009, she was awarded IIMC’s most prestigious award – the Quill. A graduate of Evangel University, Cirtin also served as president of the Missouri City Clerks and Finance Officers Association from 1999 to 2000.
