A handful of UAC staff and executive committee members traveled to Beaver, Iron, Washington and Kane Counties this week to meet with officials and discuss some upcoming projects the Association is working on as well as touch base on the individual needs of those counties.
“It’s important that we continue to provide support and a listening ear to each county,” said Adam Trupp, UAC CEO. ”We ask them to come to us regularly – and they do – but there’s great value in visiting with them on their home turf, diving in to the issues that impact them most so we have a greater sense of clarity in developing public policy positions and better services for all counties.”
Issues discussed were broad but included Centrally Assessed litigation efforts, Justice Reinvestment funding and logistics, elections funding, communications with members, and projects under UAC’s new service arm of County Services Support.
“We had some great dialogue and were able to meet with more than a couple dozen county elected and other officials in the two-day trip,” said Brandy Grace, UAC Director of Operations. “I think we all feel energized when we can meet with the members face-to-face.”
