NACo Drug Card

The National Association of Counties offers counties the opportunity to help make the cost of prescription drugs more affordable for all citizens. NACo member counties can do this and also retain $1 of the program administration fee from each prescription filled. This money can be used for the county's general operating fund.

AIC Endorsed Programs

The AIC has endorsed a select few AIC Associate vendor partners whose programs offer unique services, often money-saving services or products. Click the above link to learn more.

County Government is a great place to find home-grown innovations such as the Knox County Salt-Brine Generation and Distribution system. Click above to learn about more innovations like this.

County Awards

The AIC honors a handful of counties each year for their achievements and innovations through the AIC County Awards Program. Professional video productions of each award winning county are a great way to promote the good that county government is doing across Indiana.

The Association of Indiana Counties (AIC) is dedicated to assisting county government officials and employees. We help you become more efficient, solve tough problems, and find the resources county officials need to do their job well. We believe the starting point to all of this is through education and training.

Endorsed Programs

A list of the programs specifically endorsed by the Association.
The Association provides a variety of programs and services for members. The organization is strategically organized so that members can interact based on county office type and their specific region within the state of Indiana.
 
 
All of Indiana's 92 counties are members of the AIC. Membership consists of entire counties rather than individual office holders. They can be urban, suburban, or rural counties. Their sizes range from Marion County, with a population of over 750,000 to Ohio County, with a population of slightly more than 5,000. A county's membership enables its elected and appointed officials to become participants in AIC. They have the opportunity to serve as AIC officers, as members of the AIC Board of Directors and on various committees.
 
 
AIC affiliates are organizations representing individual county office holders. Individual office holders participate via representation on the Board of Directors, the Legislative Committee and several other committees which guide the AIC staff in performing their jobs. To affiliate, an organization must petition and be approved by the Board of Directors. Most affiliate groups sponsor meetings in addition to those regularly scheduled during AIC conferences.
 
 
The AIC divides the state up into six different districts. We sponsor special meetings and elect district officers in those districts.
