The National Association of Counties is hosting a few webinars in September and October to provide county leaders and professionals with knowledge on best practices in the respective areas.
All the following NACo webinars are available on www.naco.org.
Local Efforts Supporting Innovation in Early Childhood Development (Part 2)
September 25, 2018
2:00 pm – 3:30 pm
The National Association of Counties (NACo) invites you to participate in a webinar highlighting local innovations and best practice models in early childhood development. Counties play a critical role in shaping early childhood systems and are instrumental in investing in core services supporting young children and families. To ensure that children are developmentally on track at age three and to improve kindergarten school readiness, communities must drive increased attention on prenatal-to-three initiatives and the critical need for early investments around programs and services that ensure a healthy start at birth, provide support to families of infants and toddlers and provide high-quality child care and early learning opportunities.

County-State Collaboration in Criminal Justice Planning
September 27, 2018
2:00 pm – 3:15 pm
As counties and states across the country work to make their justice systems run more fairly and effectively, many jurisdictions are realizing that intergovernmental coordination is essential. County and state justice systems are run separately in most states, but they are very intertwined and changes at the state level can have major impacts at the local level and vice versa. Join NACo and the National Criminal Justice Association for this webinar to learn how states and counties can work together to identify issues and opportunities and develop solutions that improve criminal justice at both levels of government.
