Join us for an informative session on the 2017 Achievement Awards and NACo President Bryan Desloge’s presidential initiative, The Counties Matter Challenge: Brilliant Ideas at Work. As a non-competitive awards program, the Achievement Awards judges each application on its own merits and not against other submissions. Awards are given in 18 categories and one outstanding program from each category will be selected as the “Best of Category." By applying this year, entries will also be in the running for The Counties Matter Challenge. This session will focus on the importance of the award program, how to apply as well as feature previous award winners.
