    This year’s Annual Convention Opening General Session will focus on leadership at every level of government. How do county leaders work effectively with state leaders? What do national leaders need from our local leaders? Who steps up to the plate when problems arise on the county level? It takes a team to pull off a winning season.

    The highlight of the Opening General Session will be “Get in the Game: Voices from the County Courthouse”, a roundtable discussion hosted by award-winning National Public Radio correspondent, Debbie Elliott. She’ll be joined by two panels of veteran county leaders who will participate in an open and candid discussion about issues that every local leader inevitably encounters, along with tips and tricks of the trade for working together with county colleagues to produce solutions to common- and not so common- problems. This roundtable will be tremendously enlightening, and we encourage all county leaders to make plans to attend.

    Thursday’s agenda will begin with individualized breakout sessions. Each breakout session will feature applicable topics presented by speakers who have worked in the field and can provide practical education and valuable input. Breakout sessions are crucial because they give you the opportunity to participate in discussions and ask questions that apply to your particular field. You can’t get in the game unless you study the playbook.

    The ACCA 89th Annual Convention will provide county officials and employees with the opportunity to learn new skills and grow as leaders. Do not miss out on your chance to show what you’re made of and Get in the Game.
