Lakeway City Secretary Jo Ann Touchstone recently earned her first recertification by the Texas Municipal Clerks Certification Program.
Certification and recertification are neither easy nor automatic. Original certification required successful completion of 200 hours of individual home study over a four-course curriculum, a comprehensive examination over those courses, and attendance at eight two-day professional development seminars.
Recertification requires 72 hours of classroom instruction and a selection of additional education options.
“Municipal clerk recertification is a rigorous process, and we applaud her commitment to her profession,” Lakeway City Manager Steve Jones said.
