The Utah Association of Counties (UAC) is a voluntary, statewide organization supported by the 29 counties of Utah. UAC was formed in 1923 to help counties provide effective county governance to the people of Utah. UAC offers a broad range of management and intergovernmental relations services to elected and non-elected county government officials.
Mission: To advance county issues with the state and federal government, improve public understanding of county government, assist all 29 counties to develop and share solutions through research and education, and provide effective support services to county officials that foster public trust and improve the efficiency of county government.
Purpose: The primary purpose of UAC is to represent county government before the Utah Legislature, executive branch, and the federal government, while educating the public, the media, and elected officials about the values and needs for county programs and services.
Value: We assist all 29 counties in developing and sharing solutions through research and education, and provide effective support services to county officials for the purpose of serving their constituents.
Promise: We advance county issues at all levels, foster the public trust in county government and develop programs and services to ensure the success of counties into the future as the closest level of government to the people.
