    4. ACAA Regional Meetings set for Feb. 25-March 15

    Administrators, it’s time to mark your calendars for the ACAA Regional Meetings, all taking place between Feb. 25 and March 15. Once again this year, the ACAA Board is taking steps to allow County Administrators to better network and build relationships with one another, so each county is assigned a meeting day to gather with Administrators nearby. Each county’s Regional Meeting will be held at a nearby courthouse and consist of an official two-hour discussion, followed by lunch at a local restaurant. View a complete list of Regional Meeting dates and county assignments here. To volunteer to host your region’s meeting or to simply R.S.V.P., email Jeannie Gaines, Public Relations Manager.
