    Remarks from ACCA Executive Director Sonny Brasfield

    Last week, the trustees of the Association’s two insurance funds met to set next year’s premium contributions for the member counties and entities. Unlike the last several years, losses have increased at a much-higher-than-expected rate. That’ll certainly impact county budgets. We’ll have discussion of the losses, and several other issues, at the insurance business meeting on day one (Tuesday, August 23) of this year’s annual convention. I hope you’ll make plans to be there and to join our efforts to improve!


    This week’s need-to-know information from ACCA

    ACCA Nominating Committee to hold interviews this week

    Interviews for the Association leadership positions for 2022-23 will be held by the Nominating Committee this week, leading up to the Association’s business meeting on August 25.  One of the important details sometimes lost in the convention educational sessions is the election of the Association’s leaders for the coming year.  Immediate Past President Randy Vest serves as chair of the committee as his last “official” duty of his four years in the Association’s officer rotation process.
