AAC F A M I L Y & F R I E N D S


AAC staff who worked so hard to protect county interests. Members of the AAC Legislative Committee put together an outstanding package of bills to help improve county government. As a result, the majority of our bills were passed and signed into law. Of course, there are many other new laws that affect county government. Te AAC hosted an informative two- day legislative review May 11 and 12. If you were unable to attend, you will receive a copy of the 2017 Index of County Government Acts. Te index details legislation affecting each office in your county. I am sure you will find it useful. Now that the session is over, there is much to look

Summer is our “conference season.” Many of the associations hold continuing educa- tion conferences, which present an opportunity to learn from and fellowship with your colleagues in other coun- ties.

Looking ahead to “conference season”


nother legislative session is in the books, and I am grateful to those who made it a success — from the county officials who went to the Capitol to advocate for or against bills to the


President’s Perspective


conference will take place in July. Several county and dis- trict elected officials from Arkansas serve on NACo boards and committees. As such, they help shape NACo’s policies related to federal legislation and regulation. Te confer- ence also allows attendees to meet county officials from other states and to learn about the innovative programs they have implemented. Finally, I know you all are looking forward to the


AAC’s 49th Annual Confer- ence. Tis year the conference will run August 9-11 in Little Rock. Te theme is “Step Right Up to County Government.” In addition to crowd favorites such as the catfish dinner and the dinner/dance, there will be a slate of informative break out sessions. You should have re- ceived a mailer with information about the conference. If not, you can turn to pages 26 and 27 in this magazine for information. Registration is available online at the newly redesigned www.arcounties.org. And while you are registering for the AAC conference, consider participating in the 19th Annual Randy Kemp Memorial Golf Tournament. It will be held Tuesday, August 8, at the Country Club of Arkansas in Maumelle. Proceeds benefit the Randy Kemp Memorial Scholarship Fund. I’m looking forward to seeing you at these events this summer.
