    + Key Dates This Week

    1. Make plans to join us for ACCA County Days

    ACCA County Days is the time for county commissioners and staff to come to Montgomery to meet face-to-face with legislators and advocate for their county and for county government as a whole. Each county is assigned a date, and participation in your County Day will be critical to our success during the 2018 Legislative Session.

    Locate your county’s date below, and if you’ll be joining us for your County Day, click on the link to R.S.V.P. (and press send).

    2. Road Supervisors Training coming in February

    ACCA’s Road Supervisors Training only comes around once every two years, and 2018 is the year to take advantage of this training opportunity. All county engineering department lead operators, crew supervisors, foremen, road superintendents and others holding similar positions are encouraged to participate in this year’s training, which is set for Feb. 12-13 at the Marriott Prattville Hotel and Conference Center. To view a complete agenda and to register for the Road Supervisors Training, click here.

    *Note: A county’s Road and Bridge Safety Director and at least one Road Supervisor must attend the Road Supervisors Training to satisfy the first portion of requirement #9 of the Safety Incentive Discount Program (SIDP).

    3. Stay informed by following ACCA staff on Twitter

    5. Ala. bicentennial exhibit coming to all 67 counties

    Starting in April, a traveling exhibit celebrating 200 years of Alabama history, culture and humanities will set out to tour all 67 Alabama counties. Titled “Making Alabama,” the traveling exhibit is being presented by the Alabama Humanities Foundation in partnership with the Alabama Department of Archives and History and the Alabama Bicentennial Commission. “Making Alabama” will feature eight periods of history — from becoming a territory to achieving statehood and beyond — and local exhibits created by host communities that showcase their role in the story of Making Alabama. Click here to find out when “Making Alabama” will be in your county.




    We’re now two weeks into the 2018 Legislative Session, and county leaders are doing a tremendous job at taking to Twitter to speak to legislators and share the County Platform.

    Depicted below are the counties currently leading in the ALCountiesTweet competition. Congratulations, and please keep up the good work!

    I encourage Ala. Senators to vote YES on SB130 this week. Passing SB130 will allow the largest U.S. internet retailer to remain in the SSUT program and prevent our state, counties and cities from losing millions of critical dollars. #PassSB130 #ALpolitics #Your County
