    1. NACo Conference:  Final Details 

    The NACo Annual Conference is just around the corner (July 10-13) in Charlotte, NC. Alabama will have a large delegation of almost 100 county representatives at this year’s conference. Check out the Alabama Delegates Program and print a copy to help you plan your time, and is also provides you with a downtown map of Charlotte. A detailed NACo Conference program will be distributed with your registration materials at the convention center. The Alabama Delegates Caucus/Reception will be held on Saturday, July 11, 5-6 p.m. in Room 213 A-C in the Charlotte Convention Center. It is important that we have a good representation at this event, so please make plans to attend. The caucus/reception is being sponsored by our friends at GovDeals, and is open to all Alabama Delegates, their spouses and guests. For questions regarding the Alabama Delegates Program contact Marcia Collier at 334-263-7594 or mcollier@alabamacounties.org.

     

    2. Time is Running Out

    Regular registration closes this week for three outstanding educational opportunities that you won’t want to miss:

     

    3. ACEA Webinar is Wednesday

    Want a quick but thorough rundown of what legislation passed (and what didn’t) that has bearing on county transportation? You’ll get that and more in just a half hour.  Make sure you are registered for the ACEA Webinar, Wednesday, 2-2:30 p.m.

     

    4. Action Needed: Pre-Event Debris Contracts

    The County Joint Bid Program is now accepting new bids for disaster debris services (removal and monitoring). For counties to fully comply with the state bid law, notice of this invitation to bid must be posted in every county. The current contracts are in effect through Oct. 31, 2015. Questions? Contact Chase Cobb (ccobb@alabamacounties.org or 334-263-7594).

     

    5. Alabama Counties on Twitter

    Even if you don’t have an account, you can keep up with how Alabama counties as well as county agencies and departments are using Twitter to connect with citizens. ACCA has begun a list so that you can see all the Alabama county tweets in one place: twitter.com/alabamacounties/lists/al-s-67-counties. To make sure that as many county Twitter accounts are included as possible, please email your Twitter handle to jbritton@alabamacounties.org. (Commissioners, if you use your account to communicate about county activities, we’d love to hear from you too!)
