April is National County Government Month

National County Government Month


National County Government Month (NCGM) is a program hosted by the National Association of Counties (NACo) to raise public awareness of the services provided by county government.  Celebrated annually in April, NACo encourages counties to actively promote county government programs available to citizens throughout the month.   More than 1,000 counties participate in NCGM each year by hosting a variety community outreach events and activities. These include tours of county facilities, recognition ceremonies for county employees and volunteers, distribution of information about county programs and services, sponsoring student essay contests, meetings with business and community leaders, and adoption of resolutions. The 2011 theme is “Serving Our Veterans, Armed Forces and Their Families.”
