The National Association of Counties (NACo) is the only national organization that represents county governments in the United States. Founded in 1935, NACo provides essential services to the nation’s 3,068 counties. NACo advances issues with a unified voice before the federal government, improves the public's understanding of county government, assists counties in finding and sharing innovative solutions through education and research, and provides value-added services to save counties and taxpayers money.

NACo's membership totals more than 2,000 counties, representing over 80 percent of the nation's population.

With its headquarters on Capitol Hill, NACo is a full-service organization that provides an extensive line of services including legislative, research, technical, and public affairs assistance, as well as enterprise services to its members. The association acts as a liaison with other levels of government, works to improve public understanding of counties, serves as a national advocate for counties and provides them with resources to help them find innovative methods to meet the challenges they face. NACo is involved in a number of special projects that deal with such issues as homeland security, drug abuse and broader access to health care.

NACo understands the importance of strong public-private partnerships and is committed to assisting counties and businesses explore new, innovative ways of working together. Through the Enterprise Services Department, NACo offers county employees retirement, cooperative purchasing, debt collection, and county reinsurance programs. In addition businesses can participate in the NACo Corporate, Premier and Sponsorship Programs.

County officials and their staffs also participate through NACo's 23 affiliates. These organizations are composed of officials who share similar responsibilities, interests or knowledge areas. To keep county officials informed, NACo publishes a biweekly newspaper, County News, with circulation of 29,000, that focuses on issues and actions in Washington, D.C. and throughout the country.

NACo's committees, whose members include county officials from every region of the country, are charged on an annual basis with evaluating issues and policies. The policy development process leads to the publication of the American County Platform, which NACo uses as a guide to deliver county government's message to the Administration, Congress and the American public.

NACo delivers its services through its dedicated and skilled staff who comprise six departments.
