Juneau City Clerk Laurie Sica has been named the Municipal Clerk of the Year by the Alaska Association of Municipal Clerks.
The annual award is given for outstanding contributions to the municipal clerk profession. It’s given for professionalism and growth in the job, leadership, community involvement, and elections.
