Civic Leadership Certification

Civic Leadership Certification

Civic Leadership Certification (CLC) provides the National Organization and the respective State Organization with an assessment of the services that each chapter provides its members. Chapters who follow the CLC guidelines are healthy chapters that will prosper and grow by offering a variety of programs. All chapters achieving certification will be recognized at Annual Convention for the State Level and the Annual Meeting for the National Level.

Important Information regarding Parades


Minnesota will follow the same criteria for determining Civic Leadership Certification at the state level as what is outlined in the national program. However, we will continue to offer a separate Performers Club (Parade) program for state recognition. Visit the Performers Club Page for more information.
