Tempe City Clerk Brigitta Kuiper is Arizona Municipal Clerks’ Association “Clerk of the Year”
Tempe City Clerk Brigitta Kuiper was named the “Clerk of the Year” by the Arizona Municipal Clerks’ Association (AMCA). The award recognizes an AMCA member who has made significant contributions to the municipal clerk profession.
“Brigitta is one of the best city clerks I’ve known in my 15 years as an elected official,” said Tempe Mayor Mark Mitchell. “She is constantly looking at ways to make her office the most efficient it can be. The City of Tempe is lucky to have her.”
Tempe City Manager Andrew Ching described Brigitta as a “24 hour professional” and emphasized that “the level of professionalism that Brigitta and her staff exhibits is the sort of silent service that all too often goes unrecognized.”
Kuiper was hired as the Tempe city clerk in June 2010. She was previously employed by the City of Yuma for 18 years – 12 years as its city clerk. She is an active member of the International Institute of Municipal Clerks (IIMC) and is past president of AMCA. Kuiper holds a Master Municipal Clerk Certification through IIMC, and a Certified Public Manager designation from Arizona State University’s Public Manager Program. She is a graduate of Arizona State University. These accomplishments reflect her belief in advanced education and professional development through lifelong learning.
