Vincent Buttiglieri once only had a yearning to work in local government in New Jersey.
Now, he’s a worldwide leader among municipal clerks, having taken in 2016 the top post as president of the International Institute of Municipal Clerks (IIMC)—a professional association with 9,500 members in the U.S., Canada, and 15 other countries.
So how did the clerk in Ocean Township in Monmouth County, N.J., become the quintessential clerk in the world?
Buttiglieri first needed credentials. So he turned to Rutgers.
