Message from our President:

I hope you are enjoying your summer and staying cool! I had so much fun with all of you at Spring Conference. It felt like the perfect kickoff to summer! As President of IACO, it is always my goal to see you all networking and connecting with each other and your vendors. That time spent putting your heads together and sometimes commiserating with each other over problems and working toward solutions in your offices is so so valuable.

Speaking of the summer, the slower pace of the summer is a great time to work hard and play hard. My hope is that you have gotten to do the play hard part as your IACO board has been hard at work planning the Fall Conference in Bloomington-Normal. We hope you will make plans to join us from November 13th-15th. We will again spend time together, honor a new County Official of the Year, and learn a ton. Do you know of someone that always goes above and beyond for their county? Is there someone that inspires you to be a better elected official by the way they care for their employees and constituents? Nominate them for this honor!

I am looking forward to my final couple of months as your President. It is an honor to lead a group of people like you that are so committed to your people, your colleagues, and yourselves! Make sure to enjoy the dog days of summer and I will see you in November!

- Melissa Hurst, IACO President.
