Message from our President:

2022! A fresh start. A new beginning. A time of resolutions. Let us all resolve to be better. Do more. Be more involved. I cannot stress enough that we are all in this together. Together, we, our affiliates, and our offices can be so much better. We can all learn from one another. IACO is the ideal umbrella to provide that learning space.

Communication is key to making all of the above happen. We are starting right here. IACO will be all about communication. It is vital in our work, with our families, and with our friends. We want you to know where we have been, where we are, and where we are going. We want all of you with us every step of the way. From educational information for our members including recaps and links to many of our most recent educational sessions at conference to information about our expanding scholarship program, we want you all to be in the know whether you attended conference or not. 

It is also my goal to make the scholarship fund financially stable with a healthy balance and a plan for future fundraising to provide scholarships for many years to come. Look for applications and information about applying soon. 

Once again, this association is for you and your affiliates. Make suggestions. Ask questions. We welcome your input. Together we are better. 

Happy New Year!!


Bobbi Rairden, President
Illinois Association of County Officials
