  • Workers’ compensation audit forms & data deadline approaching
    ACCA Workers’ Compensation Self-Insurers Fund audit packets were mailed to fund members in September and are due Dec. 1.  With the Thanksgiving holiday on Thursday, counties that have not returned their audit form and data now have at most four business days to comply.  Any questions regarding audit materials need to be addressed to auditor Don Thomason at dont8@yahoo.com or 334-868-9528.

    Thanks to the ACCA Legislative Committee
    Many, many thanks to the members of the ACCA Legislative Committee who spent last Tuesday and Wednesday in Montgomery giving the ACCA Legislative Program its most thorough review in years. The discussion was healthy and will serve to clarify the direction for all 67 counties going forward. The next steps for the legislative program are review by the ACCA Board of Directors and full membership during the Legislative Conference next week in Birmingham.

    See you in Birmingham
    At the Legislative Conference next week, every county needs to make sure someone stops by the registration desk to pick up your county’s bundle of 2014 calendars and membership directories.

    Election resources
    Secretary of State Jim Bennett, who will be with us in Birmingham next week, has released two important documents. The first is the Candidate Filing Guide – 12th Edition, which provides detailed guidance for candidates about how to comply with filing deadlines. The second is the final rules for photo voter ID.

    Happy Thanksgiving!
    The ACCA office will be closed Thursday and Friday, Nov. 28 and 29.
