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 National Association of Counties (NACo) Steering Committee. The Steering Committees enable county officials from member counties to become actively involved in NACo’s policy process. The eleven NACo Steering Committees include:
- Agriculture & Rural Affairs
- Community & Economic Development
- Environment, Energy, & Land Use
- Finance & Intergovernmental Affairs
- Human Services, & Education
- Justice & Public Safety
- Labor & Employment
- Public Lands
- Telecommunications & Technology
The nomination process for membership on NACo policy Steering Committees is underway. As a NACo Steering Committee member, you are responsible for debating and creating national policies and priorities affecting counties and serving as NACo’s front line in their grassroots efforts.
If you are interested in serving on a Steering Committee, please fill out the Steering Committee Nomination Form and email completed forms to Emily Hollis (firstname.lastname@example.org) by June 1.
NACo makes every effort to accommodate the nominee’s first choice of steering committee assignments. Committee appointees serve on a committee for one year (beginning in September) and cannot transfer membership to another committee, or serve on more than one steering committee, during that year.
