Watford to serve as director for commissioners' association

Published: Monday, August 29, 2011 at 9:26 a.m.


Davidson County Commissioners' Chairman Sam Watford was elected to a two-year term on the North Carolina Association of County Commissioners' Board of Directors during the NCACC's 104th Annual Conference, which was held Aug. 18-21 in Cabarrus County.


Watford will serve as the District 11 director, representing Alamance, Caswell, Davidson, Guilford, Randolph and Rockingham counties.


A district director is responsible for staying in touch with commissioners from the district to discern issues that need to be brought to the attention of the board of directors. They are responsible for keeping association staff informed about matters of interest or concern in their districts and are responsible for representing the association with other interested parties and organizations at the local level, such as municipalities and regional planning organizations.


The association's board is comprised of five officers, 18 district directors, county commissioners who are members of the board of directors of the National Association of Counties and several presidential appointees who either chair association steering committees or serve as at-large members. The board of directors meets several times throughout the year to develop statewide policy goals in areas such as taxation and finance, agriculture, environment, justice and public safety, health and human services, and public education.


The North Carolina Association of County Commissioners is the official voice of all 100 counties on issues being considered by the General Assembly and state and federal agencies.
