NACO Leadership Book Club
NACO is offering a leadership focused book club for county officials and their staff. The book club offers an opportunity to read, discuss and network with peers. We will read two books a year focused around professional development and leadership. The second book in our series is titled “The Nebraska Unicameral Legislature At Eighty” by Ron Jensen. County Clerks will be receiving the books via mail by the end of June. We encourage county officials to read and share this book over the course of the next six months. The author, Ron Jensen will join us at the NACO Annual Conference in December to discuss the book and the history of the unicameral. If you are interested in a digital or paperback copy of your own, it is available for purchase on Amazon. To be added to the book club list for announcements and events please email Candace Meredith at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 402-434-5660.
