National Association of Counties

The National Association of Counties is the only national organization that represents county governments in the United States. Founded in 1935, it provides essential services to the nation’s 3,068 counties. This organization advances issues with a unified voice before the federal government, improves the public's understanding of county government, assists counties in finding and sharing innovative solutions through education and research, and provides value-added services to save counties and taxpayers money.

Education and Training pages on the NACo website provide links to workshops, podcasts, and video resources to strengthen the capacity of county leaders.
