Town Clerk Carol A. Jammalo recently qualified for the Massachusetts Town Clerks Association’s prestigious Certified Massachusetts Municipal Clerk designation.

She will receive her commemorative pin and plaque at the MTCA fall conference on Thursday, Sept. 27, at Jiminy Peak Resort in Hancock. Currently only 114 of the commonwealth’s 301 town clerks hold this designation.

The CMMC designation is achieved by attending MTCA-sponsored educational courses and passing a 250-question aptitude test measuring the municipal clerk’s knowledge of Massachusetts General Laws in categories such as elections and election procedures, vital records, campaign and political finance, town meetings, Chapter 40A (planning), Chapter 41 (zoning), ethics and public records.

Jammalo has served as the elected town clerk for five years. She is a member of the Massachusetts Town Clerks Association, Berkshire County Clerks Association and Western Massachusetts City and Town Clerks Association. She serves as treasurer of the Berkshire County Clerks Association.

Jammalo earned a bachelor of science degree in finance from Central Connecticut State University. In addition, she continues her professional development through courses sponsored by the MTCA and the Secretary of the Commonwealth’s Elections Division.
