What is included in the Clerk of Council job description?


Hi: Being a first term Clerk of Council, my understanding of the position is probably pretty limited. Essentially, I've been keeping minutes and passing on correspondence. Anybody with more experience want to take a stab at a good job description? Or know of a resource with a better description? Thanks in advance, Brad

Our council is trying a new council structure where there is an administrative team and a pastoral team and we went through the process of creating job descriptions for clerk... Our description included minutes, membership records and transfers, correspondence and emailing, and other stuff. hope that helps.


Big job with little or no training. It is the clerk who captures the intent of each motion from the floor and it is also his interpretation.

One of the thingsa clerk is responsible for is records management.  See the following link for what you need to save and for how long. http://www.calvin.edu/hh/Records_Management.pdf
