Sand Springs, OK- The Oklahoma Municipal Clerks, Treasurers and Finance Officials Association (OMCTFOA) recognized Sand Springs City Clerk Janice Almy as Member of the Year this month at the Oklahoma Municipal League’s annual conference.

The purpose of the OMCTFOA Member of the Year Awards is to identify and recognize a member who has made a significant contribution to the objectives of the association, the profession and to the improvement of municipal government.
