If you have knowledge or an interest in a certain issue area or concerns about the effects of federal legislation on your county, then you should become a member of a NACo Steering Committee. The steering committees enable county officials from member counties to become actively involved in NACo’s policy process. Both elected and appointed officials are eligible to serve. Members of NACO affiliate organizations may also serve.
Steering Committees examine policies that affect county governments throughout the country and guide the legislative priorities for the National Association of Counties with Congress.
The process of joining a steering committee is simple:
2) Select your first and second choice of which steering committee you would like to serve.
Committee appointees serve on a committee for one year and cannot transfer membership to another committee, or serve on more than one steering committee, during that year.
