Join Your County Colleagues in National Leadership

Seventeen Maryland county elected officials and staff serve on caucuses, standing committees and advisory boards of the National Association of Counties. Now you can join the ranks.

The National Association of Counties(NACo) is actively seeking greater participation from Maryland counties in its caucuses, standing committees, and advisory boards. Nationwide, NACo is losing many members from these committees due to retirement of county officials and election turnover.

Every Maryland county is a member of NACo and every Maryland county official is eligible for membership in NACo’s committees, caucuses, and boards.

To join standing committees, ad hoc committees, caucuses or other committees of the National Association Counties for the coming year, fill out the online application form before June 3, 2016.
