What is National County Government Month?
National County Government Month (NCGM) is celebrated each April by the nation’s counties to raise public awareness and understanding about the roles
of county government. Counties participate in NCGM by hosting a variety community outreach events and activities. These include tours
of county facilities, recognition ceremonies for county employees and volunteers, distribution of information about county programs and services, sponsoring
student essay contests, meetings with business and community leaders, and adoption of resolutions.
