The NACo Legislative Conference, held annually in Washington, D.C., brings together over 2,000 elected and appointed county officials to focus on federal policy issues that impact counties and our residents. The 2018 Legislative Conference is a can’t-miss opportunity to elevate the county voice at the national level. Attendees will participate in second-to-none educational sessions, interact with federal officials and descend on Capitol Hill, delivering the message that federal policies matter to counties and counties matter to America!

2018 WIR Conference
