BALLSTON SPA — Saratoga County Clerk Craig A. Hayner on Oct. 23 was sworn in as the new president of the New York State Association of County Clerks (NYSACC).
The installation of the organization’s new slate of officers took place during its annual fall conference, held in Clifton Park. Hayner will serve in the position for the next year.
As NYSACC president, Hayner said he will focus the organization’s efforts on expanding and further developing relationships with key entities in government, the private sector and non-profits statewide. He also will look to capitalize on the strengths of NYSACC members.
Hayner was first elected as Saratoga County Clerk in November of 2013. Prior to that, he served as a councilman on the Halfmoon Town Board for 6 years and worked in various roles in the private sector for more than 25 years.
The NYS Association of County Clerks was founded in 1921 and unites clerks from across the state, providing them a unifying voice on state legislation and regulations, the strength of their collective knowledge, and a forum for sharing best practices.
Members are nominated and voted upon for officer positions during the annual summer conference. NYSACC officers take their oaths and begin serving in their new roles annually during an installation ceremony at the organization’s fall legislative conference.
