National Association of Counties will discuss recent and potential future changes in legislation at the federal levels that will have a direct impact on Illinois local governments.  With a Q&A session following each presentation, participating officials will have opportunities to discuss impact and intent to develop a better understanding of mandated expectations.

He also served as a Legislative Assistant at NACo and supported NACo’s association management services for the National Association of County Veterans Service Officers and the National Association of Pretrial Services Agencies.
