GET INVOLVED! Join a NACo Policy Steering Committee

Now is the time to get active in the National Association of Counties (NACo) by joining a steering committee! If you have interest in a specific issue, expertise on a certain topic, or concerns about the effects of federal legislation on your county, then you should become a member of a NACo Steering Committee. Fill out your nomination form and submit it to your state association for the 2014-2015 term.

Serving on one of these committees enables you to become actively involved in NACo's policy process. The steering committees start the policy process by reviewing legislation and making recommendations on issues that impact counties.

If you are already a member of a committee, you must reapply now, as appointees serve one year terms. However, you can be reappointed to the same committee for consecutive years. This current nomination process covers appointments from August 2014 to July 2015. 

How to Join a Steering Committee

The process of joining a steering committee is simple. You must apply through your state association of counties. Here are the important points to remember:

You should fill out and submit a nomination form to your state association. 

You should mark on the nomination form your first and second choice of steering committees.

Members of NACo affiliate organizations who want to serve on a steering committee should follow the same process.

NACo makes every effort to accommodate nominees' first choice of steering committee assignments. Committee appointees serve for one year and cannot transfer membership to another committee, or serve on more than one steering committee, during that year.
