The National Association of Counties Legislative Conference, held annually in Washington, D.C., brings together over 2,000 elected and appointed county officials to focus on federal policy issues that impact counties and our residents. The 2018 Legislative Conference was a can’t-miss event, serving to elevate the county voice at the national level. Attendees participated in second-to-none educational sessions, interacted with federal officials and descended on Capitol Hill, delivering the message that federal policies matter to counties and counties matter to America.
