Last Call for NACo Steering Committee Appointments for 2022-23
All California counties are active members of NACo with a county designee for purposes of general assembly voting. As a NACo member, you have the opportunity to represent California and CSAC on one of NACo’s 10 Policy Steering Committees. Your involvement is crucial and can help ensure that California has a strong voice on federal policy issues and legislation that supports local decision-making, prevents unfunded mandates, and provides direct federal investments in county priorities.
Steering Committee Responsibilities and Time Commitment
NACo Steering Committees have monthly virtual meetings and two in-person meetings per year at the Legislative Conference in Washington DC and the Annual Conference in the summer. Steering Committee members hear presentations, learn best practices, and engage in key discussions with federal policy leaders and county leaders from around the country. At in-person meetings, committees consider and vote on policy resolutions and platform changes that guide NACo’s federal advocacy efforts. California members serve as CSAC representatives and are asked to convey the CSAC recommended positions while voting on policy resolutions. For more information on Steering Committees, please review NACo’s Get Involved Brochure HERE.
Steering Committee Roster
The 2021-22 Steering Committee Roster for California members is for your reference. Vacancies, where present, are noted for each Committee. Please note that CSAC is provided with eight appointments for each committee, and the Chair and Vice Chair roles do not count towards that total as those are NACo presidential appointments. You may only serve on one Steering Committee per year. Members who have received a presidential appointment for a policy steering committee cannot serve as a voting member of another policy steering committee. You may, however, serve on other non-policy steering committees such as caucuses, task forces, and ad hoc committees.

Presidential Appointments are for Chairs or Vice-Chairs of Steering Committees or other NACo leadership roles. These appointments are managed by NACo and have closed for the 2022-23 term.
