Kansas County Government Month

Kansas County Government Month Celebration – April 2021

The Kansas Association of Counties, in partnership with you, our Kansas Counties, announce the kick-off of a statewide celebration to recognize the importance of Kansas County Government throughout the month of April 2021.

This first KAC statewide Kansas County Government Month event is tagging onto National County Government Month (NCGM), an annual celebration of county government that is held each April. Since 1991, the National Association of Counties has encouraged counties to actively promote the services and programs they offer. Counties can schedule activities any time during the month. NCGM is an excellent opportunity for your county to highlight effective county programs and raise public awareness and understanding about the various services provided to the community.

KAC is partnering with Kansas County Public Information Officers and Social Media Managers to share messaging throughout April that will highlight effective county programs and raise public awareness and an understanding about the various services and products provided across your county. All messaging will include the theme and hashtag: #KansasCountiesMatter.

Since this is our kick-off year and we are also still dealing with the impacts of COVID-19 in our state, we decided to start small with a few manageable activities this April. Then based off this year’s activities, we can grow next year’s event as we will have more time and experience to plan for 2022.
