NCCAE Conference in Washington, D.C.
Updated: Jan 14, 2019
I had the privilege of attending a brief National Council of County Association Executives (NCCAE) conference in Washington, D.C. from January 9-11. NCCAE is an organization created by the National Association of Counties (NACo) to facilitate learning and networking opportunities for state association executive directors.
The conference agenda included updates from NACo staff concerning the organization's 2019 federal legislative agenda, briefings from members of Congress and White House personnel and an update on the status of state and local government litigation against opioid manufacturers and distributors. The conference concluded with a visit to the United States Capitol Building for a briefing presented by the staff of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-California).
NACo conferences and events present valuable opportunities for county officials and support staff to network and increase their knowledge base. I would encourage Illinois county officials to register for NACo's 2019 Legislative Conference to be held March 2-6 in Washington D.C.
