The Baxter County Elected Officials recently attended the Annual Arkansas Association of Counties Conference in Little Rock, August 20-22, 2014. They attended breakout sessions of their respective elected official groups, as well as work sessions on various subjects with the purpose of providing updates on current issues, learning of new laws in their specific areas of responsibility, as well as educational subjects to help the officials become more efficient in their positions. Statewide officials and candidates also visited and/or gave presentations about current issues and new programs across the state of Arkansas. This conference provided the opportunity for collaboration with other elected officials on proposals to be submitted to the state legislature in the next upcoming legislative session, and to brainstorm on what works and what may not work in other counties, which can in turn help Baxter County operate more efficiently.
