Columbia, Missouri, February 6-8, 2019- Mark Shahan-Presiding Commissioner, Bill King-1st District Commissioner, and Mark Thompson-2nd District Commissioner attended the 2019 County Commissioners Association of Missouri (CCAM) meeting.
The County Commissioners Association of Missouri (CCAM) along with the Missouri Commissioners Association conducts training throughout the year over a variety of content and at various locations.
The County Commissioners Association of Missouri was established in 1983 to create a close and cooperative relationship among the commissioners of the state of Missouri. Under statutory law, the chief portion of the association’s continuing education responsibility centers on this mandatory training for the presiding and two associate commissioners in all counties (except for St. Louis, St. Charles, Jefferson, and Jackson counties).
The annual CCAM meeting gives commissioners the opportunity to meet with all 330 commissioners who are solely responsible for the purchase of supplies, equipment, and services for Missouri’s counties. The meeting also provides an opportunity for its members to become better informed about the powers and duties of their offices as described by state statutes, and to investigate legislation relating to the office and responsibilities of the county commissioner.
