    1. Next Steps Begin on Property Insurance

    The boards of trustees for both the workers’ compensation and liability insurance funds will gather at ACCA headquarters this week to review financial status, investments and analysis of claims and expenses. In addition, the liability fund’s board agenda includes moving forward on a new service for counties.  One of the Association’s priority bills enacted during the 2015 session authorizes a county self-insurance fund for property insurance.


    2. Thanking Legislators

    Preparations are underway to publicly thank legislators who successfully sponsored county-friendly bills during the recent session. Chairmen and administrators in Autauga, Baldwin, Calhoun, Cherokee, Greene, Hale, Jefferson and Montgomery counties should have received an email about this on Friday. If you should have gotten this email and did not, please contact Terri Sharpley Reynolds (334-263-7594, directly.


    3. Whole Week Focused on Emergency Management

    Emergency management is a key service that county government provides throughout the state, and next week is a terrific opportunity for professional emergency managers and elected officials to build their knowledge and skills. Billed as the Tri-Conference, it will include the Summer Conference of the Alabama Association of Emergency Managers, the Central Gulf-Coast Hurricane Conference and the Governor’s Preparedness Conference. Late registration is still open if you would like to join some or all of the activities in Mobile next week.


    4. Discount for AAND Workshop

    There is still time to get the early registration discount for the Alabama Association of 9-1-1 Districts’ Annual Workshop, scheduled for July 21-22 in Prattville. The fee will increase from $100 to $115 after July 7. Sessions are planned on location data for callers, ANGEN, cybersecurity, stress management, the Alabama Legislature, audit findings from the Examiners of Public Accounts and more.


    5. National Recognition for Commissioner Turner

    A county commissioner from Alabama received special recognition at the recent economic development conference sponsored by the National Organization of Black County Officials (NOBCO). Congratulations are extended to Perry County Commissioner Albert F. Turner, who was honored for his distinguished service to the organization.
