Bloomfield Township's Jan Roncelli Named Clerk of the Year
Bloomfield Township Clerk Jan Roncelli was named Clerk of the Year this week by the Michigan Association of Municipal Clerks, according to a news release. Roncelli, first elected clerk in 2004, received the award during a presentation Wednesday at the MAMC Conference in Traverse City.
Criteria for nomination include years of experience; demonstration of greater-than-average competence in the position; activity in county/state/national associations; advancement of the clerk’s profession; a record of contributing to the improvement of the community; and respect of community leaders.
Roncelli’s leadership in the clerk’s profession has earned recognition from local, county and state organizations. Neighboring clerks often request assistance from the Bloomfield Township Clerk’s Office staff, the release said. The Bureau of Elections invited Roncelli’s department to host a training video on the use of the Electronic Poll Book.
In 2011 Secretary of State Ruth Johnson appointed Roncelli as the local election official for the State of Michigan on the Standards Board, which assists the Election Assistance Commission (EAC) in the development of voluntary voting system guidelines.
“Whether overseeing her department, deliberating with the Board of Trustees or participating with other clerks on professional issues, Jan has demonstrated the ability to be flexible with her style and firm with her principles,” Township Supervisor Leo Savoie said in the release. “Her department has earned exceptional respect among the clerk’s profession.”
