I like working at NACo because: NACo is a respected membership association that has the opportunity to build relationships between Congress, the Administration and counties throughout the United States in an effort to promote respect and understanding through an ongoing dialogue and exchange of information.
An added benefit for me is meeting all of our board members over the years and building lasting friendships while attending 120 NACo conferences.
