The Conference has been postponed due to COVID-19 advisories. Here is a message from President Jason Robinson regarding changes:
“As you know, both the Governor and the NC Department of Health and Human Services are discouraging large gatherings right now. In light of those recommendations, the Executive Committee of the NC Association of County Clerks has decided to POSTPONE the NCACC’s annual conference. The conference was scheduled to take place on March 25-27 at Great Wolf Lodge in Concord. The location remains unchanged, but the new conference dates are September 9-11, 2020. Great Wolf Lodge has transferred everyone’s room reservations to September with the same rate. All conference registrations have likewise been carried over to September. We will reopen registration in July for anyone who wants to attend but hasn’t yet registered. We expect the conference agenda to remain substantially unchanged, though some modifications may be necessary. The postponement of this year’s annual conference will take the place of fall regionals. If you had planned to host a regional, that will be carried over to 2021.
Although the annual conference has been postponed, the NCACC’s annual meeting will go forward on March 25. It will be conducted virtually with help from the UNC School of Government. Trey Allen will provide members with instructions on how to participate by computer or telephone. We need at least 35 members to participate in order to have a quorum. I will be sending out a separate email next week with the time for the annual meeting. We’re proceeding with the annual meeting so that members can vote on the slate of officers to be presented by Laura Williams and the Nominating Committee (if you need that slate of officers please get in touch with Laura). If we were to wait until September to hold the annual meeting, the terms of our new officers would be reduced by six months. We will also be voting on membership dues for the upcoming year. All other business will be delayed until the annual conference in September.
Thank you all for your patience as the Executive Committee attempts to navigate this unprecedented situation. This is something new for all of us, but we will get through it. We’re clerks, and we can adjust to anything!!”
