Benefits of Membership

The National Association of County Information Officers (NACIO), founded in 1966, is a growing organization with members from around the nation. Our members work for many of the 3,066 counties, boroughs and parishes across the United States. Some also work for the 44 state associations representing counties in the U.S.

Benefits of membership include:

  • Eligibility to participate in NACIO’s annual Awards of Excellence competition. Winners are recognized at the annual conference of the National Association of Counties and sample press releases are made available for recognition in local media.
  • Participation in NACIO’s email listserv, in which participants can see helpful information from their public information officer peers. For information about accessing the listserv, please contact Alissa Willett.
  • Helpful how-to information provided on the NACIO.ORG Website, including videos, Webinars and written accounts of seminars held at National Association of Counties conferences.
