Master Municipal Clerk City Recorder of Lincoln City Cathy Steere took the oath for 2019-2020 Second Vice President of the Oregon Association of Municipal Recorders Sept. 20.
The OAMR appointed Steere at the association’s Annual Business Meeting held at the Riverhouse on the Deschutes in Bend.
“It is an honor to serve as second vice president for the Oregon Association of Municipal Recorders,” Steere said. “It is a great organization that provides opportunities for networking, leadership, communication, training and professional growth.”
OAMR is a professional organization dedicated to promoting governmental relationships and providing educational and training opportunities for over 200 Oregon city recorders statewide.
“My personal goal is to work on expanding communication and educational opportunities to City Recorders/Clerks from smaller cities where it is generally cost prohibitive,” Steere said.
Steere, an active member of OAMR for nearly 15 years, has served on numerous committees, such as Conference Committee, Education Committee, Membership Committee, Legislative Committee, Records Management Committee, Professional Growth Committee and Special Projects and Fundraising Committee. Steere received her Certified Municipal Clerk designation in 2008, and Master Municipal Clerk in 2013 from the International Institute of Municipal Clerks.
Steere began working for the City of Lincoln City in 2004. She worked for 10 years as the Commission Clerk/Office Manager for the Grand Ronde Gaming Commission after serving as a legal assistant for many years.
