The County Executives of America (CEA) Board of Directors unanimously elected Erie County Executive Kathy Dahlkemper to the board on Thursday.
Dahlkemper’s nomination occurred during the CEA’s annual legislative conference prior to the National Association of Counties legislative meeting in Washington, D.C.
In operation since 1994, the CEA is a nonpartisan group based in the nation’s capital. The CEA currently represents over 700 member counties with an executive form of government and is the only nonpartisan association dedicated specifically to chief elected county officials. CEA members include county executives, parish and borough presidents, county judges, commission presidents and others.
"I look forward to learning best practices from other counties across the country and having a voice at the national level,” Dahlkemper said. “It’s imperative that we stay at the forefront of national issues like work force development, health care and economic development -- issues that directly impact Erie County. The group’s mission to help county governments serve the people in the most efficient and responsive way is clearly aligned with our approach in Erie County."
The board determines CEA policies, which are then communicated to the White House, Congress and any pertinent federal agencies.
