    Many, many thanks to everyone throughout county government who played an active role in the 2014 Regular Session of the Alabama Legislature! Counties have many positive accomplishments, and this would not be possible without you. A Preliminary Report was released last week, and ACCA is working on a detailed report that will follow.


    CGEI General Management: deadline extended

    The County Government Education Institute is bringing in two outstanding outside experts for this course on leadership skills, conflict management and management styles.

    Money on the way

    Members of the ACCA Liability Self Insurance Fund should watch the mail this week for refund and safety incentive checks. More than $1.2 million is being distributed to fund members, especially those that have emphasized workplace safety during the last year.


    Insurance renewal time

    Members of the ACCA Liability Self-Insurance Fund and ACCA Workers’ Compensation Self-Insurers’ Fund should have received their insurance renewal packages last week. This year’s Liability Fund renewal questionnaire has changed slightly and includes two new supplemental applications about automobile liability and e- jail/detention facilities. Both renewal applications are due April 30. If you have not received your renewal package or have questions, please contact Henry van Arcken, ACCA director of insurance services, at hvanarcken@alabamacounties.org
