  • ACCA Executive Director Sonny Brasfield will speak this week at the Alabama Sheriffs Association’s summer education conference.


    Sonny and ACCA Assistant Executive Director Lauren Hodge will attend the NACo Annual Conference July 12-15.

    NACo’s Annual Conference begins at the end of this week, on July 12. Registered attendees from the County Family have been added to the “2024 NACo Annual Conference” group on the ACCA County Family online community. If you 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. We encourage members to utilize the group in any way that will enhance their experience at this year’s Conference. And don’t forget to post your pictures!


    Do you know where you’ll be laying your head in Orange Beach during the 96th Annual Convention? Although our host hotel, the Perdido Beach Resort, is sold out, we have secured overflow space at the Hilton Garden Inn. A discount is also available through Brett/Robinson properties for 10% off a stay of three or more nights (call 888-633-7101 and reference Group ID # 1685). 

    As is customary with this event, we also have a waiting list for rooms at the Perdido Beach Resort. If you would like to add your name to the list, please email registration@alabamacounties.org and be sure to include your preferred arrival and departure dates. If you already have a room reserved at the Perdido and need to cancel, please reach out to the ACCA Events and Education Team before doing so as it can be reassigned to a member of the county family on our waiting list.
