NCACC Board Members meet with Federal Leaders in Washington D.C.
The NCACC Board of Directors recently concluded an historic trip to Washington, D.C. at the invitation of Senator Thom Tillis. Board members from across North Carolina spent two days in the nation’s capital to meet with the state’s top federal elected officials, including Senators Thom Tillis and Richard Burr, and members of the U.S. House of Representatives. The group also held its first Board meeting of the 2016-17 presidential year at the National Association of Counties’ headquarters.
During the trip, county commissioners heard from top private sector leaders, federal government officials, and senior members of Senator Tillis’ staff on a wide range of issues, including the federal budget and appropriation process, the impact of mental health on public safety, the need to expand broadband access in rural communities, as well as national security and the defense industry.
