NACO County Directory
There are 17 counties in Nevada ranging in population from over 2,000,000 residents (Clark County) to less than 1,000 residents (Esmeralda County). Historically, the role of counties has been to serve as an administrative arm of the state – maintaining records, providing courts and law enforcement, fire protection, development review and building safety, health and welfare assistance, assessing property and collecting taxes, building roads, and conducting elections. Counties still perform these functions and many others through their elected officials including a board of county commissioners or supervisors, sheriff, recorder, treasurer, clerk, district attorney, assessor and auditor. Even though Nevada is one of the most urbanized states in the nation, 7 of the 25 largest counties (by land size) in the contiguous United States are found within the state.

Committee of the EmeritusNACO’s Committee of the Emeritus was created by the Board in an effort to preserve the valuable institutional knowledge of county commissioners who are no longer in office. Comprised of termed out County Commissioners and/or Carson City Supervisors who have served on the NACO Board of Directors or been inducted into the NACO Honor Roll the mission of the Committee of the Emeritus is to act as mentors to newly elected and current officials, champion policy in members’ fields of expertise, assist NACO during the Legislative Session and make recommendations to the Board of Directors. The Committee also plans and executes educational and training sessions on a variety of topics.
