What is an Associate Membership?

An Associate Membership with IAC is a partnership with Idaho’s counties and county elected officials.  By joining IAC as an Associate Member, you are making a commitment to further cooperation between the private sector and local government.

What is IAC?

The Idaho Association of Counties is a non-profit, non-partisan organization dedicated to the improvement of county government.  Formed in 1976, IAC was designed and incorporated by county elected officials to better serve their constituents.

An Associate Membership with IAC gets your foot in the door with county decision makers.  There are numerous opportunities to position your company, services and products with the 396 county elected officials in Idaho.


When you become active as an IAC Associate Member, you have the opportunity to keep county leaders informed about the products and services you offer.  Take advantage of discounted rates to attend the IAC Conferences and you will gain the knowledge to help your business market to county officials more profitably.
