NCACC Presidential Initiative - 100 Counties Prepared

On August 14, 2021, Brunswick County Commissioner and newly installed N.C. Association of County Commissioners President Frank Williams announced his presidential initiative, 100 Counties Prepared. The initiative was borne out of his experience serving as Chair of the Brunswick County Board of Commissioners during Hurricanes Florence, Dorian, and Isaias, through which he observed a lack of emergency preparedness training suitable for elected officials. He appointed a statewide task force that worked with NCACC staff to develop a full day of emergency preparedness training for elected officials.

Sixty-one county officials from across North Carolina completed the inaugural 100 Counties Prepared Emergency Preparedness Training for County Commissioners, which was held in conjunction with the 115th Annual NCACC Conference in Cabarrus County on August 11, 2022. A second training was held on May 31, 2023, and additional trainings are planned.
