President's Message
ACCG Member Services and Good Stewardship
By Harry Lange
President
AS A FORMER executive with one of the leading companies in the
world, I know too well the significance of making the right investment
while doing what is best for your employees. In the public sector, we
equate that to being good stewards of public dollars, one of the many
responsibilities engrained in the fabric of public service. Not only do our
constituents trust us to make decisions that will ultimately provide them
with a better quality of life, but so do our county employees as they,
too, are constituents who have entrusted us to lead and serve them.
ACCG offers a number of programs to assist Georgia's county
officials with being good stewards of public dollars-just as it
provides tools and resources to help counties make sound policy
and day-to-day operational decisions. The programs are through
the association's various member services offerings and range
from property and liability insurance to retirement plans for county
employees. When shopping around for products and services such as
insurance and retirement plans, people go with the team they have the
utmost confidence will yield the best return on their investment and
one they can trust. Trust and the best return on investment are two
primary reasons why Harris County is a member of numerous ACCG
member services programs, specifically insurance and retirement.
Not only is trust a primary factor, but the assurance that those ACCG
programs are staffed with and led by individuals that know and
understand the intricacies of county government in Georgia is why
Harris County maintains its membership in those programs.
To meet the retirement services needs of our county employees,
Harris County is a participant of all GEBCorp, or ACCG Retirement
Services, programs. GEBCorp's mission is to provide excellent service
assisting public sector jurisdictions, employees, and retirees in Georgia
with all their retirement plan needs. Their expertise are plans that
are specific to the public sector-Defined Benefit, 401(a) Defined
Contribution, and 457(b) Deferred Compensation-and comes through
their concentration in and understanding of the public sector in Georgia.
Their sensitivity to various constraints placed on local governments

and their ability to provide services meeting the high expectations of
local governments in Georgia are what attracted Harris County to them.
Harris County is a member of all four ACCG insurance programs. The
county became a member of the workers' compensation fund (ACCGGSIWCF) in 1990, ACCG-IRMA (property and liability) in 2002, and a
member of both the group health benefits and inmate medical savings
programs in 2009. As a member of the workers' compensation program,
we have received dividends totaling more than $580,000 and a special
one-time dividend return in 2016. Our dividends from our membership
in the property and liability program total more than $180,000.
Being a member of the insurance programs affords you opportunities
to accumulate savings and exposes your county employees to resources
that will ultimately create cultures and work environments that make
safety and wellbeing priorities. We have saved more than $322,000
as a member of the inmate medical program with an average savings
of 67 percent off of our billed medical charges for county inmates. The
wellbeing of our employees is a priority to us and our membership in
the group health benefits program affords us access to resources that
makes it possible to establish a workplace culture that focuses on
health and wellness. Harris County has received $17,500 in wellness
grants from ACCG. Our county leaders are engaged in educational
and assessment activities offered through the Local Government Risk
Management Services (LGRMS). Through our work with LGRMS, we
have hosted health fairs, weight loss challenges, lunch and learns on
health topics, and administered health risk assessments to ensure
that our employees are proactive about leading healthy lifestyles.
As I previously stated, ACCG's member services programs are
staffed with and led by individuals who know the intricacies of county
government in Georgia. So when considering a provider for your
county's insurance and retirement needs, or any other services that
ACCG may offer, remember to go with someone you can trust and
someone who will help your county yield a return on your investment
while assisting you in being a good steward of public dollars.
