NACo First Vice President Gary Moore, judge/executive, Boone County, Ky. is planning to attend the Association of Arkansas Counties (AAC) conference being held Aug. 21-24 in Garland County.
The August recess provides a unique opportunity for county officials to engage with their national representatives right at home, drawing their focus to critical local issues before they head back to Washington.
The August recess in the federal legislative calendar provides a unique opportunity for county leaders to communicate with members of Congress, demonstrate the impact of your efforts in your communities and advocate for the federal programs that help to strengthen local programs and initiatives.
The American County Platform is NACo’s permanent policy document. When necessary, it is amended at the annual meeting. Divided into substantive policy areas covered by ten policy steering committees, the platform reflects the philosophy and broad objectives of NACo’s membership.
