The Nebraska Association of County Officials was organized in 1894 and formally incorporated in 1968. It is composed of 93 member counties.  The Nebraska Association of County Officials is a non-profit organization that serves to represent the interests of all elected and appointed county officials in the state. In its infancy, the association’s membership was comprised primarily of commissioners and supervisors. Over time it was expanded to include, serve and represent all 15 offices within county government.

General affairs of NACO are managed by a 20-member Board of Directors, five of which members are elected by the association membership as a whole to serve as executive officers. Composition of the Board, in addition to the four executive officers, includes one representative each from the three counties with populations greater than 150,000 (Douglas, Lancaster, and Sarpy), the five NACO district associations, and the seven affiliate associations whose respective members hold an elected county office. With the exception of the executive officers, who may hold each office for one calendar year, members of the Board may serve for three consecutive two-year terms.


The collection consists of two boxes of materials relating to the Nebraska Association of County Officials.  Included in Box 1 are two volumes containing the constitution and bylaws, minutes of meetings, committee information, etc. for the Nebraska Association of County Officials (NACO).  The two volumes date from 1915-1980 and 1981-2003.  During this time period, the organization was known as the “Nebraska Association of County Clerks and Register of Deeds” and the “Nebraska Association of County Clerks, Register of Deeds and Election Commissioners.”  Box 2 holds various directories, yearbooks and misc. other items.
