To further this goal, the Association of Arkansas Counties is committed to providing a single source of cooperative support and information for all counties and county and district

tion of Arkansas Counties is to work for the improvement of county government in the state of Arkansas. The Asso- ciation accomplishes this purpose by providing legislative representation, on-site assistance, general research, training, various publications and conferences to assist county officials in carrying out the duties and responsibili-

The Association of Arkansas Counties provides training and assistance in solving problems and in developing “best” practices. AAC produces numerous publications to help county officials with both simple and technical questions, so they can get needed answers without having to reinvent the wheel. This information is avail- able through numerous training workshops, helpful brochures and directories, County Lines magazine, and online at the website: www.arcounties.org
