National County Government Month 2021  


National County Government Month (NCGM), held each April, is an annual celebration of county government. Since 1991, the National Association of Counties has encouraged counties to actively promote the services and programs they offer, and every year Washington Association of County Officials looks forward to joining NACo by celebrating the work of County Officials. 

We continue to prioritize educating the public about the role of County Officials through our Know Your County Officials campaign, and through the WACO Speaker’s Bureau. We appreciate your partnership in sharing these resources through your own communication platforms.  

You will find shareable resources through our Washington County Government webpage, which includes downloadable social media graphics, and the 28page Washington County Government Book. 

 also offers many resources to communicate the importance of county work, which you can find here.  

To add to the conversation on social media, use the hashtag #NationalCountyGovernmentMonth 

2020 was a year that truly demonstrated the importance of county officials and the vital work services they provide to their citizens. WACO is honored to continue to support our county officials and celebrate their work not only in April – but year-round
