NYSAC’s mission is to represent, educate and advocate for member counties and their county officials.
The New York State Association of Counties (NYSAC) is a nonprofit bipartisan association serving the counties of New York State including the City of New York.
Organized in 1925, we are the only statewide municipal association representing the interests of thousands of county officials, including legislators, supervisors, county executives, administrators, commissioners and other of county officials who deliver essential services.
We represent New York counties before federal, state and local officials and we inform our membership and the public at large on issues of importance to counties. We educate, train and provide research on critical public policy, and we advocate for counties to the legislative and executive branches of government at the State and Federal levels.
NYSAC offers counties a variety of services and programs in the interest of better, more cost effective and efficient government. We work to maintain close ties with officials in Albany and Washington in an effort to ensure New York’s counties are adequately represented as state and federal policies and spending plans are determined.
Our staff has more than 100 years of collective legislative experience, which we have leveraged for
We provide timely and pertinent information and solutions to our member counties through conferences, policy briefs, research, survey reports, newsletters, magazines and daily news clips.
