New York State Association of Counties' mission is to represent, educate, advocate for, and serve member counties and the thousands of elected and appointed county officials who serve the public.

NYSAC represents New York's counties before federal, state and local officials on matters germane to county governments; and we inform our membership and the public at large on issues of importance to county governments.

We educate, train and provide research on public policy to federal, state and local officials and to the membership on issues important to counties. We advocate for our 62 counties, including the City of New York, to the legislative and executive branches of government at the state and federal levels.

NYSAC is the voice of New York's county governments and taxpayers.
