Warren County Chief Clerk Pam Matve has been awarded the “Outstanding Chief Clerk/Administrator Award” by the County Commissioners Association of Pennsylvania (CCAP).

The award was presented during the annual CCAP dinner on August 6 in Reading.

According to CCAP, Matve was recognized for “excelling in an ever-changing position, as well as invaluable support of programs related to courthouse reconstruction, information storage, workforce opportunities for persons with disabilities and the county’s open records process.”

“This is such an amazing honor,” Matve said. “I never thought something like this would be possible and I am truly humbled. I’d like to thank my husband, Wayne, for his endless support and everyone who’s supported me in this position.”

In an acceptance speech, Matve said it “has been a real pleasure working with Commissioner Eggleston and Commissioner Kafferlin these past few years. If I have this award, it’s because they helped me grow and pushed me to work on new projects and do new things. I am very grateful.”

“Pam has worn so many hats and has always done everything she can to improve county government,” Commissioner Ben Kafferlin said. “Frankly, I’m not sure what we’d do without her.”

Commissioner Jeff Eggleston added that “when we need to get something done, no matter what, we ask Pam to do it.

“That’s why we refer to her as ‘The Closer’, because she gets things done. This award is certainly well deserved.”
