St. Augustine City Clerk Earns Professional Certification

Rogers Becomes City’s First Certified Municipal Clerk

Karen Rogers, St. Augustine City Clerk, recently achieved a personal and professional milestone by earning certification as a Certified Municipal Clerk. Rogers, who was appointed City Clerk last June, has worked in the Clerk’s office since 1999.

Attaining certification was no easy task. Rogers attended the International Institute of Municipal Clerks Career Development Institute for three consecutive years to fulfill the requirements necessary to become a CMC, the first one in the city’s history.

Begun in 1969, the CMC program assists clerks by increasing their proficiency in areas related to their work, their professional and their personal growth. Certification points are awarded for achievements in education and professional work experience in government and business.

“The Clerk’s position is essentially the keeper of the papers,” said Rogers, adding “The Clerk is truly the protector of the voice of history, as well as being the guardian of Sunshine Laws, the records management liaison to the city and secretary to the Commission.”

“The training required to achieve CMC status not only increased the level of professionalism I bring to the job, but greatly increased my understanding of the critical role the Clerk’s Office plays in municipal government,” said Rogers

Rogers attended Juilliard School of Music as a dance major and enjoyed a 30 year career as a performer, choreographer and teacher which included performing in the original cast of “Cross and Sword” and teaching at Flagler College. A resident of St Augustine for over 25 years, Rogers attended St. Johns River Community College where she was secretary of the honor society, Phi Theta Kappa.

Rogers is a member of the Florida Association of City Clerks, the International Institute of Municipal Clerks, the First Amendment Association, and the St. Augustine Sister Cities Association. The City Clerk’s position is one of three positions hired directly by the City Commission. The other two are City Manager and City Attorney.
