On December 4th, 2020, the National Association of Counties (NACo) held its annual business meeting for the NACo Board of Directors. The meeting was called to order by Honorable Gary Moore, President of NACo. This meeting is usually held in the state and county of the current president but was held virtually this year due to COVID-19. After the prayer and Pledge of Allegiance, the board was split into groups of five where we did introductions to get to know each other.
There were 10 new nominations to the board of directors. The board then listened to the Financial Audit Reports and the Nationwide Partnership Contract Renewal. All were approved by the board. The 2020-2021 Federal Policy Landscape Review and NACo Policy Priorities were presented by Mr. Mark Ritacco, NACo Director of Government Affairs.
The priorities that were approved were:
There were 9 emergency resolutions that were submitted by members and policy committees:
After the emergency resolutions were presented, the board listened to President-Elect Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris. It is my pleasure to serve as Idaho’s NACo representative. Please feel free to contact me with any questions about NACo.
