Beyer Appointed NACo Transportation Steering Committee Vice-Chair
The National Association of County Engineers has long been one of the National Association of Counties largest and strongest affiliates. With an increased role, which has included numerous policy resolutions NACE members have sponsored, NACE's contributions to NACo's policy process has been crucial to the nation's 3,069 counties.
At NACo's Annual Conference, held earlier this month in Davidson County (Nashville), Tennessee, NACE's stature within NACo's committee structure got that much stronger. Richie Beyer, Elmore County, Alabama County Engineer and Operations Manager, was appointed a full transportation committee vice-chair. This marks the first time in recent memory that a NACE member has served in this pivotal role in guiding county government transportation policy.
