SHOW YOUR LOVE FOR FLORIDA COUNTIES THIS APRIL
April is National County Government Month, an excellent opportunity for your county to highlight effective county programs and raise public awareness about county government.
Counties Matter is the theme of this year’s celebration. From responding to COVID-19 and economic challenges, to strengthening infrastructure, ensuring public safety and building vibrant communities, one thing has been clear over the past year – counties matter.
While counties face many challenges, we have much to be proud of. Selfless county officials and frontline employees have demonstrated bold, inspirational leadership and saved countless lives during these extraordinary times.
DELIVER THE MESSAGE THAT FLORIDA COUNTIES MATTER
During NCGM, we have an opportunity to reinforce the message that Florida Counties Matter. As we emerge stronger than ever from the COVID-19 pandemic and economic crisis, now is the time to spotlight your county’s role in achieving successes at the local level.
Visit www.naco.org/NCGM to access resources to help you share your efforts with the public, including graphics, media outreach tips, a sample proclamation and a news release.
