The Alaska Association of Municipal Clerks (AAMC) Executive Board last month installed Homer City Clerk Melissa Jacobsen as its first vice president, the AAMC announced in a press release last month.

This will lead to her ascension to president of the association in November 2019.

AAMC was incorporated in 1965 and has a present membership of more than 100 clerks throughout the state of Alaska.

The organization works to provide continuing education, to promote professionalism in the office of the municipal clerk, to foster relationships among clerks throughout the state, and to support sound local government.

Jacobsen has worked with the city of Homer for 14 years, and has been the City Clerk for one-and-half years. She has previously held the offices of communications director and second vice president for the AAMC Executive Board. She also has been a member or chairperson of various AAMC committees.
