    Renewal packets for 2019 participation in the ACCA Liability Self-Insurance Fund (LSIF) and its Property Program (LSIF-PP) were distributed last week to current Fund members. After looking through their packets, Fund members are advised to (1) sign and date the Declarations Page(s); (2) make their premium-contribution payment payable to ACCA LSIF; and (3) mail the Declarations Page(s) and the payment to ACCA LSIF at P.O. Box 589, Montgomery, AL 36101-0589 as soon as possible. Premium-contributions received after Jan. 31, 2019, will be considered overdue. Fund members who don’t receive their LSIF renewal packet by Friday, Dec. 28, should contact Stephanie Hanvey Carr or Marcia Collier.

    2. ACCA to hold March 3 Delegate Caucus, Reception in Washington D.C.

    As is tradition, the ACCA will hold a Delegate Caucus and Reception on Sunday, March 3, from 5-6:30 p.m. in conjunction with the National Association of Counties’ (NACo) Annual Legislative Conference, taking place March 2-6. More information will be distributed about the Association event in the coming weeks. County leaders should note that there will not be a Roundtable with Alabama Senators on Capitol Hill this year. The 2019 Regular Session of the Alabama Legislature will begin on March 5, and the ACCA staff will return to Montgomery on March 4. County leaders are encouraged to schedule their own visits with Senators while in D.C. for the NACo Conference.

    Since returning from the Legislative Conference, the ACCA policy team has been busy at work conducting meetings with several outside groups expected to advance legislation impacting counties in the coming session. This past Thursday, the staff met with the leadership of the Alabama Department of Youth Services to discuss the 2019 version of juvenile justice reform legislation.
