                                                   IACREOT


The International Association of Clerks, Recorders, Election Officials, and Treasurers (IACREOT) was founded in 1971
by a group of government officials who wanted a professional organization which would provide a forum for the free
exchange of information, resulting in improved standards for serving the public. Although the founders belonged to other
governmental organizations, they felt these groups were unresponsive to their desires to establish an organization
which would speak with a unified voice on matters of importance to them.

Over the years, IACREOT grew in both membership and purpose. Professionalism in public service, openness, and
good fellowship became goals of the organization. Members are governmental officials whose responsibilities fall into
one of four areas – finance, land records, courts, and elections. Each of the four areas is a specific division with its own
director and education programs. As membership grew, so did the size of the Trade Show, which provides the
opportunity to see the latest technology and equipment, predominantly in the election field.

Today, IACREOT is one of the most successful, well-respected organizations in the United States, with over 1,600
members, representing local, state, provincial, national, and international associations and agencies. The elections
division has approximately 1,200 members and is the most active of the four divisions.

As an association, IACREOT is governed by its Constitution and By-Laws. The Executive Committee consists of 10
elected positions and 10 positions appointed by the President. The Executive Committee meets three times a year. The
IACREOT Board of Directors includes the Executive Committee and all Delegation Directors, representing each U.S.
state, Canadian province, and international member. The Board of Directors meets twice a year.

An Annual Meeting is held during the summer each year, where all delegates participate in the business of the
organization, elect officers, vote on the location for upcoming annual conferences, and participate in several educational
workshops and seminars. Numerous functions are held in the Trade Show to allow members to visit with vendors and
see the latest technology.

IACREOT has a strong partnership with IFES. In 1997, 40 IACREOT members participated in the parliamentary
elections in Albania as both observers and technical election experts sponsored by IFES. Numerous members
participated in IFES sponsored electoral assistance projects and conferences and IACREOT supports many IFES
works, including the Buyers Guide, which is distributed throughout the United States by IACREOT.

In response to the 2000 Presidential Election in the United States, IACREOT formed a Resource and Review
Commission of election experts who have participated in election reform matters for several months. Five resolutions
were adopted and passed by the Board of Directors in support of two existing federal agencies who have supported
election officials for many years. Resolutions were also passed reinforcing the rights of voters, the military, and the
disabled voting community. IACREOT members continue to participate in numerous election reform task forces,
election reform organizations, and with election vendors to improve services and equipment.

IACREOT, although a not-for-profit organization, is financially independent, thanks to the dues structure and donations
from groups and members. Fund-raising activities including auctions, social events, and special sales which benefit the
IACREOT education fund. IACREOT awards five (5) college scholarships each year to children of members, Members
come from the largest urban cities, to the smallest rural areas. All find worthwhile education sessions, information, and
new technology at IACREOT meetings.

IACREOT offers full individual memberships, deputy memberships, corporate memberships, and association
memberships, as well as life memberships for those who have retired from public service. There are more than 100 life
members in IACREOT.

Education has become a major emphasis of IACREOT members and IACREOT has partnered with a United States
University to develop 12 different course modules taught by university professors. After completing nine of the 12
modules, IACREOT members will receive a Chancellor’s Certificate in Public Administration. More than 100 members
are currently enrolled in this education program. Members may also benefit from receiving continuing education units for
various education programs offered at IACREOT meetings. These programs encourage continued membership in the
organization and continue to grow.

Immerse yourself in Knowledge at IACREOT Annual Conference: IACREOT Annual Conference
is held in the late summer of each year, in a different area of the United States. The 4-day conference
brings together hundreds of public officials from all over the world to attend seminars on relevant topics
presented by dynamic speakers focusing on four tracks of education pertinent to clerks, recorders,
elections officials and treasurers. These programs run simultaneously offering numerous choices of
educational seminars to attendees. Several programs are presented during the conference that appeal to
more than one fields, joining groups together for these universal topics.

IACREOT Annual Conference, exhibitors from all over the world gather in one spot to show you what
they offer. It may be the best that bookbinding services offer for real estate document recorders,

technology offers, all under one roof. Vendors offer you a “hands on” demonstration showing the
benefits of their product line so that you can make excellent purchasing decisions for your agency.

in office accomplishments by offering a special award that acknowledges our members who have been
successful in overcoming challenges. An award is given out annually in each division (clerks, recorders,
elections officials and treasurers) when a best practice is submitted which shines above the rest in the
field.
