Collaboration embodies a primary cornerstone of the Association’s mission. FAC, with the partnership of affiliate organizations that represent county government professionals, can strengthen advocacy efforts and ensure that our membership receive expert technical advice throughout the policy-making process. In 2014, FAC expanded its support of affiliates’ organizations by absorbing a portion of the administrative work—including meeting planning for organizations interested in gathering concurrently with a FAC Conference—for a small administrative fee.
