County clerks from across the state meet in Onslow Co. for annual meeting

JACKSONVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – County clerks from across the state are meeting in Onslow County this week for their annual conference.

They’re the official record-keepers for local governing bodies and are appointed by board of commissioners.

With only 100 county clerks in North Carolina, they feel they are a small, but instrumental group.

The clerks touched on a number of hot topics across the state, like education.

The association’s president said it’s important to keep everyone up to date.

“If a statute is to change and we are not aware of it then our county commissioners could potentially be in violation of an open meetings law and certainly we don’t want that to happen,” said Paula Woodard, President of the NC Association of County Clerks.

The conference will continue throughout the weekend in Jacksonville.
