City Clerks New Law and Elections Seminar open for registration, now through Nov. 15

Sep 21, 2022

From protecting public records to election administration, city clerks are an integral part of the democratic process. With overall public trust continuing to decline, the job of a city clerk has never been harder — or more important.

The City Clerks New Law and Elections Seminar — scheduled for Dec. 7-9 in Monterey — equips city clerks of all tenures with the tools needed to respond to emerging challenges and conduct routine business. The seminar provides numerous opportunities to learn from other colleagues and policy experts, as well as form invaluable support networks.

This year's seminar will cover a range of topics, including election resources, language accessibility and community engagement, multi-generational teams, best practices for working with other city officials, and an update from the Fair Political Practices Commission. Additional information is available in the “program at a glance” section of the seminar webpage.    

Registration and hotel information 

Registration for the full seminar starts at $500 for city officials from any Cal Cities member city. Seminar registration includes admission to all educational sessions, the Wednesday evening reception, Thursday breakfast and lunch, Friday breakfast, and access to all program materials. The deadline to register is Nov. 15. Afterward, officials must register on-site.  

This year, the City Clerks New Law and Elections Seminar will be held at the Hyatt Regency Monterey at 1 Old Golf Course in Monterey, California. Centrally located on the Monterey Peninsula, the hotel is just two miles from the Monterey Regional Airport and offers complimentary self-parking for hotel guests.

A limited number of hotel rooms are available at a reduced rate for seminar attendees. The deadline to reserve a discounted hotel room is Nov. 7, 2022. Discounted rooms often sell out before the deadline, so register early!
