Rehoboth Beach City Secretary Ann Womack earned the designation of Master Municipal Clerk, as awarded by the International Institute of Municipal Clerks.

The designation is granted to municipal clerks who complete educational requirements and have pertinent experience in a municipality. The program prepares applicants to meet the challenges of the role of the municipal clerk by providing them with education in partnership with institutions of higher learning. The certified training program for municipal clerks, deputy municipal clerks and tax collectors has offered these municipal officials an opportunity to achieve state and national certifications in their positions.

Womack has been city secretary since 2005 and is active in the Delaware Municipal Clerks Association and Delaware Chapter of Women Leading Government.

City Manager Sharon Lynn said she is pleased with Womack’s certification.

“The city of Rehoboth Beach and I are very pleased that she has received this award. It consisted of a lot of demanding work, studying and hours. We are all very proud of her,” said Lynn.

“It feels like such a great accomplishment receiving this certification. The training I have received enables me to stay updated on laws and duties as a clerk, and it helps me to perform my job serving the city as best I can,” Womack said. “I am very thankful to the city for this opportunity, and I look forward to continuing my IIMC education.”
