The National Association of Counties (NACo) Annual Conference is the largest gathering of county officials in the country and the foremost opportunity to exchange information with your peers and learn from nationally renowned experts on topics directly related to serving your residents. The Annual Conference is also where we set our federal policy agenda for the year ahead.

NACo’s 2017 Annual Conference in Franklin County (Columbus), Ohio will offer over 50 committee meetings, plenary sessions and educational workshops, including four mobile workshops designed to give you first-hand insights into:

  • Nationwide Children’s Hospital – one of America’s leading health care and research facilities supporting more than a million patients and families annually
  • Ohio State University Campus Agriculture – Franklin County, the City of Columbus and community partners leverage food system development to revitalize neighborhoods, improve health, address food   insecurity and foster economic growth
  • Rickenbacker Inland Port – a global multi-modal logistics hub for product distribution to U.S. and Canadian consumers
  • Scioto Mile and National Veterans Museum

The Annual Conference also features an exhibit hall with over 150 companies displaying the latest products and services geared towards county needs. Make new contacts with vendors and NACo partners offering potentially cost-savings solutions specific to county governments.   Columbus – Ohio’s capital and the 15th     largest city in the United States – is located within 550 miles of more than half of the U.S. population.
