The North Carolina Association of County Commissioners presents a united voice for the state's 100 counties in dealing with such groups as the General Assembly. The association communicates with members through publications and an internet home page.
Local governments use various approaches for communicating with citizens, such as televising meetings or setting up Web sites. Three boards of county commissioners tried a different approach; they held meetings away from the county seat. No agenda was set. The goal was to listen; to respond to concerns; and to attract people who are not usually active in civic and political affairs. Citizen-outreach efforts in Buncombe, Catawba, and Halifax Counties are profiled.
