National Association of Counties

The National Association of Counties (NACo) is the only national organization that represents county governments before the
Administration and Congress. NACo provides essential services to the nation’s 3,068 counties. Driven by a strong membership, NACo’s board of directors represents counties across America. NACo’s executive committee is comprised of four officers elected by the membership, along with a regional representative from each of the four regions in the country. County leaders develop and shape the association’s mission and goal. NACo is headquartered on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. with a professional staff led by Executive Director Matthew Chase. NACo Website
