NASCOE “Touch Card” On-The-Way!

June 2021

Dear County Office Employees,

In the coming days, each county office will be receiving an inaugural NASCOE “touch card” explaining the history of NASCOE and the advantages of becoming a member of NASCOE.   This informative card will enable our co-workers to better understand NASCOE and the role it plays in representing all county office employees.  Development of the touch card was a collaborative effort of the NASCOE Membership Work Group.  This group was comprised of PT’s and CED’s from around the nation. 

Along with the touch card, you will receive a letter from NASCOE President, Brandon Wilson.  We encourage you and your co-workers to take a look at both the touch card and the letter from President Wilson.  The touch cards are a great way to engage in conversation about NASCOE and the voice it provides for our co-workers both on the local and national level.

If you would like further information about NASCOE or joining NASCOE, please contact your state association leadership or visit the NASCOE website at https://nascoe.org/.

Thank you for all you do in serving your producers and your FSA Family.

Announcing the NASCOE Leadership Development Program

NASCOE Leadership Development Program

October 24-26, 2019
Dallas, Texas

NASCOE is excited to announce an opportunity for states to develop and enhance leadership to promote sustainability and success into the future. We are asking states to identify, engage, educate, and invest in the “NASCOE Leadership Development Program” which is designed to focus exclusively on leadership development and enhancement all the way from the state level to the national level!

We have so much undiscovered and available talent within NASCOE’s membership, and we want to do our best to recruit and train future aspiring leaders to continue carrying the torch. It is NASCOE’s goal to deliver this training in a “train-the-trainer” format so that the results and benefits will be perpetual by allowing states to take this model back home and continue “passing the torch” to future generations of up and coming leaders.

It is important to understand that this leadership training is not focused on a traditional audience compared to NASCOE’s audience for legislative conferences. Our intent is to focus on leadership development, with only a segment of legislative education.

Over the course of several months, NASCOE’s leadership has worked diligently to formulate a targeted plan of action, a suitable venue location, and a team of excellent presenters and coordinators.

Please visit the NASCOE Leadership Development page
for more details and instructions on how to apply.
