County Assembly Day is an opportunity for North Carolina county officials to meet with and hear from state legislative leaders and meet with their state legislative representatives.

The NCACC will host its 2019 County Assembly Day on Wednesday, May 8, starting at the North Carolina Museum of History in downtown Raleigh. A brief program in the morning will be held at the museum, which is directly across Jones Street from the General Assembly. NCACC will also host a lunch on the State Capitol grounds.

The activities begin in the morning with a legislative update from NCACC staff and remarks from leaders of the General Assembly. Attendees will then have the afternoon for lunch (service from noon - 2:00 p.m.) and visits to the Legislative Building to meet with members of their delegation and advocate on behalf of their counties. The lunch has been moved to the south side of the State Capitol grounds (Fayetteville Street side), and county officials are encouraged to invite their legislators to join them for lunch and the remainder of the afternoon.
