President's Message

Martha Sauerbrey - Tioga County

Welcome to the New York State Association of Counties.

It is my honor to represent NYSAC members, who are some of the most innovative, committed, and resilient local leaders that I know.

NYSAC, at its core and from its beginning is an association of county leaders. We were created by and for county officers. Our success comes from our ability to unify all counties, regardless of size, region or political ideology, around the shared interests of a diverse state.  

When we come together, through our association, we can achieve extraordinary reults for our communities.  

There are no shortage of issues facing our counties right now. And none of these challenges are easy to solve. But our role, as an association, is to help us turn these challenges into opportunities.  

I encourage you to engage with NYSAC, through this website, through conferences, on social media or by picking up the phone. We're here to serve you as a New York County official, and to serve the millions of New Yorkers whose lives we impact every day.
