2,000 Members and Counting…City Clerk Cafe

city_clerk_coloredWhere can you learn about storage apps such as Dropbox, gather tips for taking minutes, and exchange stories from the frontline of a City Clerk?  You can do all this (and more!) on the The City Clerk Cafe on LinkedIn.  And that’s probably why so many city clerks–2,000-plus actually–have joined this LinkedIn group.

The City Clerk Cafe has thousands of members from all around the country, giving clerks the opportunity to connect, network, and brainstorm together in an organized forum.  It also allows members to track discussions, search for jobs, ask questions, share advice, and get updates on the latest seminars and conferences.  And the best part is you can choose the frequency and depth of the updates you receive straight to your work Inbox by customizing your settings and choosing the conversations you subscribe to.

What are some of the other benefits of The City Clerk Cafe?

  • Ease of connecting and networking with fellow clerks
  • Organized feed and search with an easy-to-read format
  • Options for organizing and sharing information
  • Integration with social media accounts
  • Options for quantity of updates receive via email (when posted, once daily, once weekly, only certain discussions, no updates)

    We wanted to share a comment about how a Missouri UB and Payroll Clerk used a Texas connection at the City Clerk Café to make her job easier:

    “I am once again preparing for a Council Meeting and it seemed to flow a little better since I created a check-off list similar to the one you use. Thank you so much!”

    We love the the Clerk Cafe is making it easier for clerk’s around the country to do their job!
