Pittsburgh, Pa. – The National Association of Counties (NACo), the national association representing county government, today announced that Matthew D. Chase has been named the association’s Executive Director.  The announcement came as thousands of the country’s local government leaders gathered in Pittsburgh for NACo’s 77th Annual Conference and Exposition.

Mr. Chase, 41, will assume the Executive Director role at NACo on Sept. 17, 2012.  As Executive Director, Mr. Chase will serve as the spokesman for NACo and America’s counties; advocate before federal policymakers with aligned organizations and partners; and promote counties and county issues to the media on behalf of NACo’s more than 2,400 members.  He will also direct the operations, initiatives and staff of the association.

“I am thrilled that Matt has accepted the offer to become our Executive Director.  His talents will enhance our efforts to represent counties in Washington and continue to improve the connection between NACo and our local county elected officials,” said Lenny Eliason, NACo President and Athens County Commissioner. “Matt’s experiences at the National Association of Development Organizations (NADO) have prepared him to succeed at NACo and keep the shine on our 75-year legacy as the representative of county officials nationwide.  Matt has big shoes to fill replacing our retiring director, Larry Naake.”
