About the UAC Annual Convention
Each November, Utah’s county government officials from all 29 counties, representing 13 different affiliate organizations, their staff, and other key local and statewide government officials gather in St. George to discuss legislative issues, become educated on policy changes and updates, collaborate on issues, and share best practices. Affiliate organizations include:
- Behavioral Healthcare Directors
- Commissioners/Council Members
- Economic Development Directors
- HR/Personnel Directors
- IT/IS & GIS Officers
- Planning Directors
Convention attendees use the event to discuss strategy on legislative topics, collaboration on other issues, sharing best practices, professional education, and becoming better acquainted with new products and services being marketed to local government.
The Annual Convention typically attracts more than 80% of every elected county official in Utah, plus many of their deputies and administrative staff. Format for the three-day event includes traditional breaks, general sessions, break-out sessions, socials, and other general gatherings (such as breakfasts, lunches, and dinners).
