NASCOE Virtual Convention August 26 & 27, 2020
NASCOE held its 61st Annual Convention on August 26 & 27, 2020. As we couldn’t gather our NASCOE family together in person, we hosted the convention using the Microsoft Teams platform.
NASCOE would like to thank DAFO for allowing employees to use their Government computers to view most of the sessions. This allowed many FSA County Office employees the opportunity to hear directly from FSA staff from the Administrator’s office, DAFO, DAFP as well as NASCOE leaders from across the country. We hope that this first ever virtual convention has sparked employees interest in becoming NASCOE members, and re-ignited the spark for our current members.
If you were not able to join us live, we have recorded most of the sessions and are working to upload and post them to NASCOE’s YouTube Channel.
Each of the recorded sessions are embedded on this website

What is NASCOE?
In 1958, county office employees organized state associations to work for employee benefits. In early 1959, the State Associations formed the National Association of County Office Employees. NASCOE is the national affiliate of the various state associations. It is governed by a Board of Directors composed of two members from each state. An executive committee is the executive arm of the Board of Directors. Dues are nominal and are paid through an individual’s state association.
Our objectives are to assist in every way possible to assure successful operation of FSA and the attainment of FSA’s objectives, to cooperate with other groups and organizations, to conserve and improve our soil resources, to secure equitable salaries, working conditions, and retirement provisions for all county office employees and to promote the professionalism of our employees.
Since 1962, NASCOE has been granted exclusive recognition to represent full-time county office employees in negotiation with management on terms of employment and working conditions.
