Being an elected official is not just about managing relationships with constituents, it’s also about managing relationships with members of your own county government team. With two critical members of the team being the county manager and the county attorney, it is important to understand how to work with the two offices to achieve positive results. In partnership with the National Association of County Administrators (NACA), the National Association of County Civil Attorneys (NACCA), and the International Municipal Lawyers Association (IMLA), county attorneys and administrators will discuss how to maintain a cooperative relationship with county board members.
