PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE     

by Wanda Winkelmann

All Aboard – Full Steam Ahead!

This was the theme for our Annual Conference held last week in Durango. Session topics included the relationship between the elected officials and staff; succession planning; municipal court best practices; clerk’s liability; cross cultural experiences; public engagement; city and county relations; open records; cyber security; and a legislative update.

Veryl Goodnight, the conference opening speaker, described her life as a sculptor and painter. Her most notable work, “The Day the Wall Came Down,” is a seven-ton bronze sculpture of five bronze horses jumping over the fallen Berlin Wall. Imagine the logistics of delivering this monument to Berlin, Germany!

Conference attendees rode a narrow-gauge train to Riverbend Ranch and enjoyed networking with fellow clerks and conference sponsors and vendors. After a delicious taco dinner, riders rode the train back to the station.

Closing speaker Gail Harris gave an account of her 28-year career in the Navy as the first woman to serve as an Intelligence Officer. Her experiences are further described in her book, “A Woman’s War,” a copy of which was given to each conference attendee.

Chris Vicari was elected as the new CMCA Vice President, and April Hessman and Jackie Kennefick will continue in their roles as Treasurer and Director, respectively.

Not ones to let the dust settle, the Conference Planning Committee is moving “Full Steam Ahead” to plan the 2020 conference in Greeley. With the theme, “Vision for the Future,” I am certain there will be many opportunities for networking and the sharing of knowledge. I hope to see you in Greeley in 2020!
