The National Association of Counties (NACo) unites America’s 3,069 county governments. Founded in 1935, NACo brings county officials together to advocate with a collective voice on national policy, exchange ideas and build new leadership skills, pursue transformational county solutions, enrich the public’s understanding of county government, and exercise exemplary leadership in public service. NOBCO is an affiliate of NACo and both organizations work together on critical issues impacting their constituencies. NOBCO takes a deeper dive to look at, study, and inform county officials on issues NACo addresses from the perspective of the impact to Black County Officials. Together we are able to strengthen some of our most vulnerable communities to build a stronger America.
