Looking ahead to my year as NACo president, I want to take this opportunity to let you know about the appointments that I will have the privilege of making to NACo’s leadership team. These appointments are for one-to-three-year terms and membership on some of these committees has specific requirements. Following are the appointments along with the qualifications required for each.
Please complete an online application if you are interested in being considered for a presidential appointment to any of the following committees or to the NACo Board of Directors.
Steering Committee Leadership
The 11 steering committees will each have a leadership team consisting of a chair, an appropriate number of vice-chairs, and subcommittee chairs and vice-chairs. Those applicants who have been active members of the steering committee will be given preference in consideration for these appointments.
The applicant should be willing to help coordinate leadership conference calls, develop the meeting agendas and testify before Congress if necessary. These appointments are for one year.
Caucus Steering Committee Leadership and Members
The Rural Action Caucus Steering Committee and the Large Urban County Caucus Steering Committee will each have a chair and an appropriate number of vice-chairs and committee members. Applicants who have been active members of these caucuses will be given preference in consideration for these appointments. These appointments are for one year.
At-Large Appointments to the NACo Board of Directors
Each president appoints 10 at-large directors to the NACo Board of Directors for a one-year term. These appointments are to add balance to the board with respect to any inequities between urban and rural, gender, geography and minority representation. As with our communities, our strength is in our diversity. These appointments are for one year.
