ACCA Annual Convention 2017

  • Published: January 23, 2017
    89th ACCA Annual Convention


    In the past few months the State of Alabama has faced challenges unlike any in recent memory.

    During this tumultuous time the people of Alabama are looking for leadership and consistency, and they will find it at the local level. County officials and employees will remain in the courthouse every day fighting to keep the people of Alabama confident in our ability to lead.

    One important way to show citizens they can depend on county leaders is to “Get in the Game.” Take the lead on economic development, healthcare needs in the state, prison reform, disaster planning, and road and bridge funding just to name a few.

    These topics and many others will be addressed at this year’s ACCA Annual Convention. There is still much to be determined in the remainder of the legislative session and topics will certainly expand based on what passes, but below you can download a tentative agenda, found on pages 2-3 of Convention Notes.
