The National Association of Counties (NACo) released a statement earlier today to announce the cancellation of their 2020 Annual Conference and Exposition. They will have virtual meetings to address business matters that traditionally take place during the conference.
The safety and well-being of conference participants is our top priority. In light of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and after much thoughtful discussion, including concerns about large gatherings, the National Association of Counties (NACo) Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 NACo Annual Conference and Exposition and proceed with a virtual Annual Business Meeting, including the election for 2nd Vice President, consideration of bylaws amendments and other association business.
We will hold the 2020 NACo Annual Business Meeting on Monday, July 20 at 2 p.m. EDT on a secure online platform with the ability of our members to vote in accordance with our bylaws.
We are also planning to host a virtual membership town hall meeting on Monday, July 13, at 4 p.m. EDT that will include:
- 2nd Vice President candidates forum
- Overview of proposed bylaws amendments
- Status report on voting delegate credentials totals
- Review of NACo policy resolutions
We are developing innovative ways to continue to support counties, deliver resources and exchange solutions to the many challenges and opportunities we face.
The full email, including FAQ’s on the conference, can be viewed here. The virtual offerings are free for all NACo members to attend, but registration is required, and voting delegates must complete a credentials form as part of the registration process.
