Task Force Description

American City County Exchange

The American City County Exchange (ACCE) is America’s only non-partisan forum for local government officials who believe taxpayers should come first in every decision. Always putting their neighbors and constituents first, ACCE members learn from other local decision makers and industry experts about issues, processes and problem-solving strategies for the key issues in their communities.  Provided with important policy education, local decision makers become more informed and better equipped to serve the needs of their communities.

ACCE Mission Statement

The Mission of American City County Exchange is to engage local elected officials and leaders from business and industry for the advancement of limited government and free market principles.
