    Another new face in state government this year is Kenneth Boswell, director of the Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs (ADECA).

    At ACCA’s 89th Annual Convention, Boswell will help county leaders “get in the game” with economic development.

    You can’t Get in the Game if you don’t know the players.



    Be there! 9:45 a.m., Wednesday, August 23 | ACCA Annual Convention
