About the NCACC
The North Carolina Association of County Commissioners (NCACC) is the official voice of all 100 counties on issues considered by the General Assembly, Congress and federal and state agencies. The Association provides expertise to counties in the areas of advocacy, research, risk management and education and leadership training.

Initiatives & Committees
Each North Carolina Association of County Commissioners (NCACC) president selects critical issues they will address during their 1-year term, usually through the creation of a special task force of elected and appointed county officials. Some past presidential initiatives have included increasing awareness of county services for veterans and active duty military and their families, youth engagement and educating the public about county government.
While the Board of Directors ultimately sets NCACC policy, it relies on the Association’s 7 Steering Committees for guidance and recommendations. Each Steering Committee has a chairperson that represents the committee on the Board of Directors. The chairperson is appointed by the NCACC President each year.
Steering Committee membership is open to all county commissioners, as well as county staff who specialize in committee-related fields. If you would like to join a Steering Committee, please complete this sign-up form and join us for a meeting.
Steering Committee meetings are scheduled as needed to shape NCACC policy and to provide educational opportunities to steering committee members. The steering committee meeting schedule is available here.
