Municipal clerks are tremendous resources to the cities and towns they serve. They handle so much that goes on in the community — elections, interactions with residents, open records requests, council/board meeting preparations, and so much more.

2023 Election Webinar Series

Our Election Webinar Series is back! We're excited to provide clerks with essential information concerning elections, beginning Thursday, November 16. CML will host Karen Goldman, MMC, on a series of webinars concerning best election practices. Karen has provided training for municipal clerks in the elections arena during her almost 20 years as a municipal clerk in Colorado and currently runs the League Municipal Clerk Advisor Program.

Colorado Municipal Clerk Advisor Program

CML, the Colorado Intergovernmental Risk Sharing Agency (CIRSA), and Colorado Municipal Clerks Association (CMCA) created the Colorado Municipal Clerk Advisor Program as a free service to assist municipal clerks with specific job-related questions or challenges.

Karen Goldman, former Aurora deputy city clerk, is available to offer insight and provide guidance on particular issues or questions that may arise in your city or town. While not intended to provide interim or long-term work, this arrangement offers municipal clerks a “helping hand” if they need it.

Contact Karen at 303-981-8022 or

Clerks Listserv

Only municipal clerks, deputy clerks, and records managers and/or licensing managers of CML member municipalities may sign up for the CML clerks listserv. All listserv subscription requests are subject to CML approval and municipal membership status.

Listservs allow groups of individuals signed up for the service to share information and ideas by email. Any subscriber can post a question or provide information to the listserv, which then is automatically emailed to all the members of the group. All responses from other members of the group are emailed to all subscribers. 

The Colorado Municipal Clerks Reference Guide is intended as a general guide to the duties of a municipal clerk.
