Join the CMCA Board of Directors!

Here is your chance to make an impact and be part of the CMCA Executive Board! I can tell you that I have served as a Director and am just finishing up as Past President and it has all been an amazing experience. It has pushed me to better myself and in turn, help guide the organization as well. There are three positions that are available on the upcoming ballot:

  • Vice President – 3 year term serving as Vice President, President and then Past President
  • Secretary – 2 year term
  • Director – 2 year term

The attached Call for Nomination needs to be completed and returned to no later than September 5, 2018.

Ballots will be emailed out no later than September 12 to qualified members (no more than two persons from any one municipality) and will be required to be cast no later than 5 pm on October 12, 2018 in order to be counted. Results will be announced at the Business Meeting at the Annual Conference on October 18, 2018 in Colorado Springs.

If you have any questions regarding the roles, responsibilities or time requirements of the positions there is information in the CMCA Handbook or feel free to reach out to Patti Garcia.


 Happy August 2018 Colorado Clerks!

As of today there are only 2 months and 18 days left in the Bruce reign of terror as President of CMCA.  No reflecting on my time in office yet as a lot can happen in 2 months and 18 days, so on to some fun facts about August.

    Unwise Passions: A True Story of a Remarkable Woman and the First Great Scandal of Eighteenth Century America by Alan Pell Crawford

    In the spring of 1793, eighteen-year-old Nancy Randolph, the fetching daughter of one of the greatest of the great Virginia tobacco planters, was accused, along with her brother-in-law, of killing her newborn son. Once one of the most sought-after young women in Virginia society, she was denounced as a ruined Jezebel, and the great orator Patrick Henry and future Supreme Court justice John Marshall were retained to defend her in a sensational trial. This gripping account of murder, infanticide, prostitution charges, moral decline, and heroism that played out in the intimate lives of the nation's Founding Fathers is as riveting and revealing as any current scandal -- in or out of Washington.

    Join us for an Olympic themed book: The Boys in the Boat: Nine Americans and Their Epic Quest for Gold at the 1936 Berlin Olympics

    Out of the depths of the Depression comes an irresistible story about beating the odds and finding hope in the most desperate of times—the improbable, intimate account of how nine working-class boys from the American West showed the world at the 1936 Olympics in Berlin what true grit really meant.

    It was an unlikely quest from the start. With a team composed of the sons of loggers, shipyard workers, and farmers, the University of Washington’s eight-oar crew team was never expected to defeat the elite teams of the East Coast and Great Britain, yet they did, going on to shock the world by defeating the German team rowing for Adolf Hitler. The emotional heart of the tale lies with Joe Rantz, a teenager without family or prospects, who rows not only to regain his shattered self-regard but also to find a real place for himself in the world. Drawing on the boys’ own journals and vivid memories of a once-in-a-lifetime shared dream, Brown has created an unforgettable portrait of an era, a celebration of a remarkable achievement, and a chronicle of one extraordinary young man’s personal quest.
