The Premier Designation for Ontario Municipal Clerks
The Accredited Ontario Municipal Clerk (AOMC) certifies a clerk on their education, experience, and professional contributions. This professional designation establishes a professional standard that ensures the clerk's profession remains relevant and attractive through a commitment to continuous learning and development. The municipal clerk is one of two statutory roles required for each Ontario municipality.
The AOMC designation establishes a high standard by promoting the unique value, elements, and professional requirements for municipal clerks in Ontario. These duties require strong leadership, organizational, political, and legislative knowledge in order to effectively manage services, policy processes, and various matters of legislative compliance with elected officials.
"Achieving the AOMC designation was both a personal and professional milestone that simultaneously strengthens the role of the clerk and my own career. Completing the application provided a great opportunity for self-reflection and it was relatively straightforward, with great support from AMCTO staff."
