Camden County Earns National Achievement Award

Camden County, Georgia has been recognized with an Achievement Award from the National Association of Counties (NACo). The awards honor innovative, effective county government programs that strengthen services for residents.

“I am very excited about the announcement of Camden County’s latest National Achievement Award.  We work hard to implement best practices to provide excellence in public service,” said County Administrator Steve Howard. “This accomplishment recognizes the efficient, effective, and forward-thinking professionals working in Camden County government and our strategic partnerships.”


This year, NACo recognized Camden County’s Interactive Permits and Land Use Dashboard in the category of Information Technology.


NACo President Greg Cox said, “Counties implement innovative programs that enhance residents’ quality of life every day. This year’s Achievement Award-winning programs demonstrate how counties build healthy, safe and vibrant communities across America.”


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 2019 Annual Conference and Exposition July 12-15 in Clark County, Nevada. 


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.
