Kingsport’s City Clerk Angie Marshall accepted a new role as president of the Tennessee Association of Municipal Clerks and Recorders (TAMCAR) last week.
Since 2010 Marshall has worked as the City Clerk and has been a member of TAMCAR. She has steadily climbed her way up TAMCAR’s chain of succession since being elected as secretary several years ago.
“When I was elected as secretary, I knew the role of president was inevitable and I have anxiously been looking forward to the challenge,” Marshall said. “I have forged so many valuable friendships across the state during the last eight years and I know that these relationships will help me move our organization forward.”
Marshall has a long resume of public service. She holds degrees in criminal justice and public management from ETSU and has worked for three different municipalities since beginning her career in 1996. Her career has included not only clerking, but a long stint as a police officer in Oak Ridge. She came home to Kingsport when the City Clerk/Deputy City Recorder position opened up eight years ago.
TAMCAR provides continuing educational opportunities and certification credits to clerks across the state of Tennessee. Marshall’s ambitions as president include increasing membership, as well as attendance at TAMCAR’s twice-yearly conference.
While Marshall is excited to serve as TAMCAR’s president, she’s not done moving upward. She has her sights set on the International Institute of Municipal Clerks (IIMC) as well, from which she received a Master Municipal Clerk designation last year.
“My goal is to eventually serve on the IIMC board as well, so that I can benefit not only clerks in Tennessee, but around the world,” Marshall said.
