District Meetings

Each year, NCACC hosts a series of district meetings where county commissioners and other county officials meet to share challenges, successes and issues impacting counties within the region.

New this year, each District Director and their planning team served as the host county for their district’s meeting. NCACC Executive Director Kevin Leonard was also in attendance during each meeting to give an Association update and gain insight from the representing counties. During the “NCACC County Conversations Tour” of District Meetings, the Association asked each county to list the top three major challenges and top three major accomplishments.
