City of Valdosta Clerk Teresa Bolden has earned the designation of Certified Municipal Clerk (CMC), awarded by the International Institute of Municipal Clerks (IIMC), Inc. IIMC grants the CMC designation exclusively to municipal clerks who complete the demanding education requirements and who have a record of significant contributions to their local government, their community and state.

“In light of the speed and drastic nature of change these days, lifelong learning is not only desirable, it is necessary for all in local government to keep pace with growing demands and changing needs of the citizens we serve,” said City Manager Larry Hanson. “Teresa performs her duties with the highest degree of professionalism and integrity and is a great credit to our city and to her profession. We are fortunate to benefit from her talent and ability.”
