Natalie Hayworth, a management assistant in the city clerk’s office at South Pasadena City Hall, has earned her designation as a Certified Municipal Clerk (CMC) from the International Institute of Municipal Clerks.
According to South Pasadena’s Chief City Clerk Marc Donohue, the institute only grants CMC designations to those municipal clerks who complete demanding educational requirements and have made significant contributions to their local government, community and state.
“To give you some perspective,” explained Donohue, “there are currently 14,500 active members in the International Institute of Municipal Clerks and only 4,700 have their CMC designation.”
That’s only about 30 percent of the membership explained Donohue, noting that Hayworth has reached a lofty milestone.
Hayworth started her career in the City of San Gabriel’s City Clerk office and since arriving in South Pasadena in 2013 has been a “shining example,” according to Donohue, of the city clerk’s profession.
