Deputy City Secretary Jesse Elizondo graduated from the Texas Municipal Clerks Certification Programjesse on January 24, 2019.

The Texas Municipal Clerks Certification Program began in 1967 and is the only university-level professional education program for city clerks and city secretaries in Texas, and is the third oldest of such programs in the country. It is also recognized by the International Institute of Municipal Clerks.

The 69th Texas Legislature adopted H.B. 2092, which gives State sanction of the Program and provides that certification will be issued to each person who successfully completes the program. H.B. 2092 also requires persons that certify in Texas recertify every five years.

The program is comprised of four courses of study covering municipal finance, municipal law, election law, public economics, public administration, human resource management, public and press relations, communications, office administration and municipal court administration. Completion of the program requires over 200 hours of individual study that includes submitting written work and successfully passing four examinations. In addition, the candidate must attend eight related seminars requiring over 100 contact hours of instruction.
