Meet Mindy Cuppy, California State’s City Clerk of the Year!

leitner-and-cuppy-300x199My good friend and colleague, Mindy Cuppy, was awarded City Clerk of the Year by the City Clerks Association of California in April of 2014.  Woo Hoo!  Congratulations Mindy!!

What does a City Clerk do?  The profession of Municipal Clerk (also referred to as City Clerk) is a critical administrative professional position and one of the oldest careers within the public service sector.  A City Clerk is at the core of local government and the direct link between the community and local government leaders.  The City Clerk is responsible for compiling and distributing City Council meeting agendas, administering elections, recording the history of the community, and documenting all laws (ordinances) that are passed by the City Council. Within the United States each municipality has a City Clerk or has designated someone on staff to perform these important responsibilities.

Mindy’s former experience as an executive assistant and her B.A. in Political Science from the University of California, Santa Cruz, helped prepare her with the skills necessary to transition into the career of City Clerk.

Mindy is also the coordinator of the International Association of Administrative Professional’s (IAAP) California Statewide Conference in Sacramento, CA on June 6-8, 2014.  For more information visit,

Administrative professionals who are interested in being a leader, supporting local government, making a difference in the community, and earning a good salary (often times six figures in large metropolitan areas) should consider the career of City Clerk.
