How to Join NACo
Member benefits are just an invoice away!
Who can join NACo?
County governments. Once a county is a member, benefits extend to all county elected officials and staff.
How does my county join?
Joining is as simple as requesting an invoice. If your county would like to learn more about NACo or request an invoice to join, please complete this webform.
NACo provides an opportunity for counties to work together to handle issues faced by counties every day. We are stronger together than apart.
— Nick Crossley, Director of Emergency Management & Homeland Security Agency, Hamilton County, Ohio
How much are my county's dues?
Dues are based on a county's 2010 Census population numbers and follow the calendar year — January through December.
Can my county join anytime throughout the year?
Yes. Your county dues will be prorated, depending on when you request an invoice.
How long does it take to become a member once I have requested an invoice?
A county is considered a member once your county’s membership dues are paid in full.
