The 2023 Newly Elected Officials Workshop will be held Saturday, November 18 - Sunday, November 19.  CCAP welcomes all newly elected county officials to this one-and-a-half-day educational program in conjunction with the CCAP Fall Conference. The workshop is intended to provide an overview for all individuals new to county government and serves as an opportunity to connect with other new officials from across the Commonwealth. Participants will attain a better understanding of their roles as a public official, become aware of the county government responsibilities and key issues, and learn about CCAP and its programs and services. Seasoned officials are also welcome to attend as a refresher course. See the agenda below for the days/times of the program. A detailed Newly Elected Officials Workshop Agenda will be available soon!

The 2023 CCAP Fall Conference will be held Sunday, November 19 - Tuesday, November 21. This year's Fall Conference features engaging programming for County Members with a focus on county “hot topics" and is a time for CCAP to plan its priorities and goals for the coming legislative year with an emphasis on association and county business.
