“I am very excited about the announcement of two of Camden County’s programs earning National Achievement Awards. This allows Camden County to share our best practices with other counties across the nation,” said County Administrator Steve Howard. “This accomplishment recognizes the efficient, effective, and forward-thinking professionals working in Camden County government.”
NACo recognized the following programs in Camden County:
- Joint Addressing Ordinance and Manual in the Category of Planning
- Emergency Management Agency Joint Information System Plan and Center in the Category of Risk and Emergency Management.
NACo President Roy Charles Brooks said, “Counties seize opportunities to deliver services more efficiently and build stronger communities every day. Achievement Award-winning programs are examples for counties that are determined to enhance services for our residents.”
Nationally, awards are given in 18 different categories that reflect the vast, comprehensive services counties provide. The categories include children and youth, criminal justice, county administration, information technology, health, civic engagement and many more.
NACo will recognize award-winning counties at its 2018 Annual Conference and Exposition July 13-16 in Nashville/Davidson County, Tennessee.
Started in 1970, NACo’s annual Achievement Awards program is designed to recognize county government innovations. Each nominee is judged on its own merits and not against other applications received.
