Sessions Led by NACA Members

Building Citizen Buy-In
Monday, March 5 from 1:45pm – 3:00pm
Room: Columbia 9 & 10, Terrace Level
with Dena R. Diorio, County Manager, Mecklenburg County, North Carolina

County government management and operations rely on citizen engagement for many reasons, including votes on bond proposals and tax increases, input on budget proposals and key advisory boards. This workshop will focus on more ways counties can harness and increase citizen engagement in overall operations and management, validating decision-making and working effectively as a community. This workshop covers using social media to rapidly mobilize a community, successful messaging and other public outreach tools.

Building Trust Through Performance Metrics
Monday, March 5 from 3:15pm – 4:30pm
Room: Columbia 6 & 8, Terrace Level
with Peter Austin, County Administrator, McHenry County, Illinois

In an increasingly complex world, counties are tasked with meeting growing demands with fewer resources. To meet this challenge effectively, many counties track performance to review progress and adjust day-to-day operations. This session discusses how counties of all sizes track performance, existing processes and lessons learned. 

Counties Care: How to Effectively Serve Families in Need
Tuesday, March 6 from 8:00am – 9:15am
Room: Columbia 6 & 8, Terrace Level
with Matt Smith, County Manager, Dakota County, Minnesota

The roots of poverty strike deep within a community. The experiences of children aged 0-3 can have a profound impact on their social and economic wellbeing later in life, and cycles of poverty can perpetuate in a family simply because of inadequate care for the county’s youngest residents. This workshop will bring together county leaders to discuss their work in trying to break this cycle of multigenerational poverty through early childhood development efforts. Breakfast will be provided for attendees.
