County delegates to convene around state budget and legislative priorities
The NYSAC Legislative Conference will begin in ten days with a series of standing committee meetings, training forums, and presentations on critical issues facing counties today.
 
Thirteen (13) standing committees will discuss and adopt a series of resolutions designed to set the advocacy direction of the association and its membership.
 
Twenty-five training forums (workshops) will address timely issues facing counties, including state budget proposals, indigent defense, social media policies, 9-1-1 operations, cybersecurity, ridesharing, AirBNB, public health functions, veterans programs, and other topics designed to inform county officials.
 
Three conference-wide presentations will be focused on the state of state's finances, economic trends, and the opioid addiction crisis.
