Presidential Initiatives

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.
