Macon County Commissioner Ronnie Beale was sworn in as First Vice President of the North Carolina Association of County Commissioners (NCACC) last month during the Association’s 105th Annual Conference, which was held in Wake County.
As NCACC First Vice President, Beale will work closely with the other members of the NCACC Executive Committee to guide the NCACC Board of Directors on legislative and administrative issues affecting counties throughout the year.
Beale has served as a Macon County commissioner since 2006. He was elected NCACC Second Vice President in August 2011.
Beale first served on the NCACC Board of Directors in 2010-11 as the Chair of the NCACC Human Services Steering Committee. He also served on the Public Education Steering Committee in 2008-09.
The Board of Directors and its Executive Committee make policy decisions to guide the NCACC and its staff through the year. The board consists of the five officers, 18 district directors, elected members of the National Association of Counties (NACo) Board of Directors, five at-large commissioners and several ex-officio members who chair NCACC committees or hold other appointments.
