Member Toolkit: Communicating with Constituents  

One of the most important parts of your job as an elected county leader is communicating with constituents.  Of course, county leaders don't always have a lot of time to research and implement outreach tools. 

To help you, NYSAC has put together several tools, tutorials, and images for you to use in communicating with residents of your county. 
As your county association, we are here to support you in your role as a county leader. Feel free to contact Mark LaVigne ( at NYSAC if you have any questions.
