>> time to update the clc network
ACCG is asking all counties to appoint or confirm their county legislative coordinator (CLC).
The CLC plays an integral role in assisting with ACCG's advocacy efforts during the legislative session. CLC's help keep county commissioners and county management updated on
legislation of importance to counties and provide county-specific information to ACCG, as
requested, in order to help legislators assess the impact of proposed legislation.
County chairs are asked to officially designate a CLC by passing a resolution at a commission
meeting. You may contact ACCG Legislative Policy Coordinator Ines Owens at (404) 522-5022
to obtain a copy of the draft resolution. Also, please contact her to confirm or appoint your
county legislative coordinator as ACCG prepares for the start of the next session.
