GENESEO, N.Y., JUNE 27, 2023 – Michele Rees was recently recognized by the Livingston County Board of Supervisors after being among the first 18 clerks in New York State to be certified under the newly-formed New York State Association of Clerks of County Legislative Boards’ Certified Legislative Board Clerk program.
Rees, who has served Livingston County since 1994 and was appointed the Clerk of the Board in 2013, is at the forefront of numerous County endeavors. The Office of the Clerk of the Board is a key department at the county government level whose primary goal is to assist the Board of Supervisors in carrying out all of its actions. The office is the source of reliable information, a research arm for the board, record-keeper of board actions, policies and procedures and is the link to all departments in the County and the constituency at large. The vast majority of work performed by this office is governed by state rules and regulations.
In addition to her primary duties, Rees is also tasked with updating the public on various initiatives, local laws and important dates. She is responsible for planning and organizing special events for the County including the Employee Recognition Ceremony, groundbreaking and ribbon cutting events for building projects, honoring public officials and more.
“Michele’s work, while often behind the scenes, is invaluable in supporting the mission of the Livingston County Board of Supervisors,” said David L. LeFeber, Chair of the Board. “Her knowledge of the County, policies and procedures and her ability to connect with people have served our County well. Her certification as part of the NYSACCLB’s newly-minted Certified Legislative Board Clerk program is a testament to her work ethic and her desire to continually improve her skill set to best serve Livingston County residents.”
The CLBC program is open to legislative board clerks, deputy legislative board clerks and their related staff. Participants must be active members of the New York State Association of Clerks of County Legislative Boards and successfully compile at least 50 points through annual trainings and conferences and other educational opportunities to become certified.
