NCACCBrunswick County Commissioner Frank Williams has been appointed Chairman of the N.C. Association of County Commissioners (NCACC) General Government Steering Committee by NCACC President Fred McClure. The General Government Steering Committee studies issues dealing with the general relationship between counties and the state and federal governments, including reviewing proposed legislative goals.

“Actions taken by the state and federal governments impact county government and county residents in many ways,” said Commissioner Williams. “It is critical that counties speak with a strong voice on these issues, and I am honored to represent Brunswick County in this role. I look forward to working with commissioners from across the state to equip our members with the information they need to educate their state and federal representatives on the potential county-level impact of their policy decisions.”

Each of the NCACC’s seven steering committees meet quarterly. While the NCACC board of directors ultimately sets association policy, it relies on the steering committees for guidance and recommendations. The steering committees meet quarterly to gather and consider information on emerging county-related issues, and membership on the steering committees is open to all county commissioners as well as county staff who might have a particular interest or expertise. By virtue of the appointment, Williams is also a member of the NCACC board of directors.

The North Carolina Association of County Commissioners (NCACC) is the official voice of all 100 counties on issues being considered by the General Assembly, Congress and federal and state agencies. Founded in 1908, the Association provides expertise to counties in the areas of lobbying, fiscal and legal research, communications, intergovernmental relations, information technology, field visits and risk management services.
