Montrose, CO – City Clerk Lisa DelPiccolo has begun her term as president of the Colorado Municipal Clerks Association, (CMCA) after serving as vice president for that organization since October 2017.
DelPiccolo was officially sworn in Oct. 18, for the 2018-2019 term. DelPiccolo has been a member of the CMCA and the International Institute for Municipal Clerks, (IIMC) since 2008. In 2013 DelPiccolo was elected to a director position with the goal of increasing Western Slope representation on the board.
"At the time, it seemed that most events, meetings, and training were focused on the Front Range, and the board was lacking a Western Slope representative," DelPiccolo said.
Since then, a majority of the board is now comprised of Western Slope clerks serving Montrose, Mountain Village, Mt. Crested Butte, Grand Junction, and Pagosa Springs. In 2019 the CMCA Annual Conference will be held in Durango.
Grand Junction City Clerk Wanda Winkelmann was elected Vice President for 2018-2019 term.
"It's very exciting for those of us clerks who have put in our windshield time driving across the mountains," DelPiccolo said.
DelPiccolo has been a member of CMCA's Education Committee and vice chair of the Handbook/Study Committee since 2015. She has also held membership in the Annual Conference Committee since 2017.
DelPiccolo was appointed city clerk for the City of Montrose in January 2011 after serving as deputy city clerk since April 2008. DelPiccolo achieved Master Municipal Clerk (MMC) designation from the International Institute of Municipal Clerks in November 2017 and has been a Certified Municipal Clerk since 2012.
"To become involved in CMCA, it's critical to have the support of your municipality. The City of Montrose, City Council and staff and especially City Manager Bill Bell, have been incredibly supportive of my involvement in CMCA, which requires a commitment to attend a multitude of meetings, training, and conferences," DelPiccolo said.
