ANAHEIM, Calif.— Laserfiche is the primary sponsor of the sixtieth annual conference of the International Association of Municipal Clerks (IIMC), which brings together more than 1,200 government officials representing 15 countries for a week of collaboration focused on helping local governments around the world run more efficiently in a time of tight budgets and strict regulations.
The gathering will be held May 14 – May 18 at the Anaheim Marriot.
Under the theme “Leadership with Imagination!,” municipal clerks from thousands of cities across the United States and from countries as far away as Hungary, Israel and South Africa will come together to exchange ideas and share best practices.
“This gathering of city officials is like no other in the country,” says Chris Shalby, interim executive director of IIMC. “We’re proud to be hosting our milestone sixtieth annual conference in Anaheim, and we know that all of our attendees will leave not just with an invaluable learning experience, but with fond memories of their time in the city.”
Laserfiche is the leading provider of document management software solutions to local governments around the world and has been a major supporter of IIMC for more than 10 years.
“City clerks are among the most vital decision-makers in local government, responsible for managing the flow of information into and out of city hall, among many other duties,” said John Devine, director of government solutions at Laserfiche. “Laserfiche is proud to support an organization that encourages thousands of cities to work together with the common goal of improving local government for citizens of cities around the world.”
Anaheim City Clerk Sheryll Schroeder will act as Host Clerk during the conference. City officials will present an educational session highlighting a selection of the Anaheim’s best operational practices, offering advice on how to handle a wide range of local government issues. Collen Nicol, city clerk of Riverside, Calif., will present a session on how Laserfiche solutions have helped the city automate the agenda creation process and manage documents across multiple departments during a presentation of Riverside’s best practices.
Other notable speakers at the conference include Bryan Elliott of Walt Disney Imagineering and Joan Lunden, former host of ABC’s “Good Morning America,” who will share first-hand tips on how to positively deal with major life changes. Conference attendees will also spend an afternoon exploring Disneyland and other well-known Anaheim landmarks.
