  • NACo’s Annual Conference begins on July 12. Are you registered?

    If so, you have been added to the “2024 NACo Annual Conference” group on the ACCA County Family online community. If you have recently registered for the conference and do not have access, please contact Abby Fitzpatrick.

    Have you set your sights on participating in a specific NACo session in Tampa? Post about it to the “Group Chat” and invite others to join you – or once the session is over, share with the group what you learned. Trying to make advance lunch or dinner plans for Tampa? Make a post and ask your peers to join you. The opportunities are endless, but we encourage members to utilize the group in any way that will enhance their experience at this year’s Conference.

    Scott Kramer, Autauga County Administrator, joined the Board of Directors for County Risk Services at his first meeting last week. The Association is grateful for Scott’s participation and leadership.

    ACCA’s new membership and registration portal is now live. County staff will receive an instructional email at 2 p.m. today with tutorial videos that will help you navigate the site. If you have any questions, you can always contact the Events and Education Team.


    The June episode of the 2 North Jackson podcast was released last week. You can listen to it here, or through your favorite podcast app. Guests include Hon. Miles Robinson, ACCA Vice President and Macon County Commissioner, discussing personal and professional experiences helpful in leadership; Hon. Chris Green, Blount County Probate Judge and Commission Chair, discussing decades of family service in county government and Jeff Smitherman, Alabama EMA Director, discussing emergency management plans and expectations for the 2024 hurricane season

    IAC staff are working on the 2024 IAC annual report, which will feature projects from each county and highlight our partners in design, construction management, and broadband. If member counties have pictures of their ARPA dollars at work, we would love to showcase them! Please email any images to Courtney Lane and make sure to identify what project is shown in the images.
