Excellence in County Government Award Applications Due August 8
There are many county officials who go above and beyond their job descriptions, finding better ways to serve the public, reaching across county lines to collaborate with others, and taking statewide leadership roles in issues important to counties. When you read that last sentence, someone came to mind - nominate them for an Excellence award. Everything you need to know is at www.ndaco.org/eicg.

Are you Social-ble? We are!
If you would like to keep up with what's going on at our events and with county happenings in general, like us on Facebook! We post statewide job openings, make announcements and point you to interesting links on Facebook, and elsewhere on the Web. Unlike some FB pages, we only post a few times per week or less, so you don't have to worry about getting overwhelmed with junk posts. We're at www.facebook.com/ndcounties.
We also Tweet now and then, (pretty much the same stuff) at www.twitter.com/ndcounties
....and occasionally post some videos at www.youtube.com/ndcounties
Prove to your kids or grandkids just how completely hip you are! (You can start by not using the word "hip" unless you're being ironic.)

Get our County Officials Directory Web App for Your SmartPhone
We've created a coolio new app for smartphones. With it, you can search for county officials by county, by name or by position, and the data is ALWAYS up to date. Just scan the QR code below with your phone and you'll get a chance to test it out for 2 days before deciding if you want a one-year subscription for only $9.99 (cheap). If you don't have a QR reader, open your SmartPhone's web browser (Safari or Google, etc) and navigate to cod.ndaco.org. Let us know if you love it, or just like it, and if there's any way we can improve it. Some users have found it to be a bit slow the first few times in use, but that's temporary - and we're trying to figure it out and fix it.
Free Webinars on Important Topics
Please remember to check our "Upcoming Events" calendar (right column on this page) often. We post information on upcoming webinars from ND LTAP, NACo and various federal offices and other sources. You can also see what the National Association of Counties is offering at www.naco.org/webinars.
