Cindi Gamb, MMC, WCPC, CMTW
Deputy Clerk-Treasurer, Village of Kohler

I began my Municipal Government Career in 1994 when I was appointed Deputy Clerk-Treasurer for the Village of Kohler.  In my 27 years I have attained my Certified Municipal Treasurer of Wisconsin designation in 2008, Wisconsin Professional Clerk designation in 2009 and Master Municipal Clerk designation in 2011.

Currently, I have the pleasure of serving as District 6 Co-Director for both the Wisconsin Municipal Clerks Association (WMCA) and the Municipal Treasurers Association of Wisconsin (MTAW).

From 2011 to 2012 I served as President of the Municipal Treasurers Association of Wisconsin. In 2016 I was appointed to serve as a director for the Association of Public Treasurers of the United States and Canada, and then treasurer for the association from 2016 to 2018.

During my career I have served on several conference committees and am currently a member of the Certification Committee, a trainer at the UWGB Clerks and Treasurers Institute, a trainer for Chief Election Inspectors and Chairperson of MTAW’s Treasurers Workshop.

In 2015 I was awarded the Joseph J. Krueger Award from MTAW for my outstanding contributions to the treasurer profession and my community.

My husband Jeff and I have one son, Jerrod, and one Golden Retriever, Daisy. I am an active member of First United Lutheran Church. In my spare time I enjoy reading, camping, quilting and crocheting.

Congratulations Cindi!

Watch for your 2022 Dues Email

The WMCA Office will be emailing out your WMCA 2022 dues renewal email on Thursday, December 30th.  Your dues should be paid by the end of January 2022. 

There will be a link in the email for all Active and Government Associate Members to pay with a credit card on-line or to note that you will be sending in a check.

For our Vendors/Associate Members:  since only the actual member can access our system, and most of you pass the membership form on to an assistant to take care of, your email will have a form attached and credit card info can be written on the form or mail in the form with a check.

If you have any questions, please contact

Request from the WI Department of Administration

The Public Records Board (PRB) is undergoing the process of reviewing and revising the Facility's General Records Schedule, RDA FAC00082, Monitoring and Surveillance Recordings, which currently expires November 2022.

Email Address Changes
I know that some of you will be changing your email addresses for better security, and I just wanted to remind you to please let the WMCA office know when you make an email address change.  While you can do some updating of your record through the Membership Directory, one thing you cannot change on your own is your email address.  You need to email to and I will change your email address in our records. 

In addition, if you are on Clerklist (a separate system) you need to let me know that, too, if you want your email address changed in that system.
