NACo members have until January 12 to submit interim policy resolutions.
In preparation for the National Association of Counties (NACo) 2022 Legislative Conference, NACo encourages members to submit interim policy resolutions to guide NACo’s advocacy in Washington, D.C.
The American County Platform and the association’s policy resolutions address the needs and interests of county governments across the nation. As such, these policy statements serve as a guide for NACo members and staff to advance the association’s federal policy agenda before Congress, the White House, and federal agencies.
Interim policy resolutions enable members to address policy issues at the Legislative Conference that may not have been addressed at the previous Annual Conference. Interim resolutions may not overturn existing policy resolutions and will expire at the 2022 Annual Conference in Adams County, Colorado.
During the Legislative Conference, NACo’s ten policy steering committees and the Board of Directors consider legislative and policy resolutions that will guide NACo advocacy until July 2022.
All interim resolutions must be submitted electronically (preferably as a Word document) via email to firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday, January 12, 2022. For complete details on NACo’s policy process, click here.
IMPORTANT REMINDER: If you plan to submit a policy resolution, you (or a designated representative) must appear in person at the steering committee meeting at the 2022 Legislative Conference to introduce and explain the resolution.
