Governor Nathan Deal joined county officials from across the state at the 100th annual conference of ACCG, Georgia’s county association, held April 11 – 15 at the Savannah International Trade and Convention Center. In addition to giving the centennial keynote address, he also installed the association’s 2014-2015 Board of Managers.
Mike Mulcare, Douglas County District 3 Commissioner, was sworn in as a member of the Board of Managers for 2014-2015. He also was re-elected as President of the ACCG’s Group Health Benefits Board of Directors. This board manages the delivery and quality of ACCG health benefits and wellness services to over 100 county governments and authorities on Georgia.
“The ACCG Board of Managers is comprised of individuals with a passion for public service. They show a willingness to serve not only as a leader in their own community but also as a leader among their peers by serving their association,” said ACCG Executive Director Ross King. “We have a dedicated Board of Managers who work well together and help set our strategic vision for the future.
ACCG is Georgia’s county association and works on behalf of county officials and their communities by providing public policy and legislative advocacy, leadership development, civic and community engagement initiatives, insurance and retirement programs that specialize in local government needs and other cost-saving programs. Formed in 1914 when county officials came together to help fund the state’s first highway department, ACCG today serves as a catalyst for advancing Georgia’s counties.
“I am very gratified and humbled as I am entrusted to help manage numerous programs and their delivery to the communities of all Georgia Counties. The ACCG’s advocacy for county governments, life-long learning programs, members’ health and other services enhance the effectiveness, outreach and professionalism of county governments. In turn, this helps enhance the value and cost effectiveness of service delivery to the taxpayers”, says Commissioner Mulcare.
