Counties Help Make
West Virginia  

Almost Heaven

It Starts with Us

WELCOME to the West Virginia Association of Counties.  We are fifty-five reasons why West Virginia is such a wonderful place to live and work, raise our families, and glory in the natural beauty of our hills and valleys.

This association provides the tools to assist our elected county officials in making county government work for the benefit of our citizens, promoting the good works from public service, and finding solutions to make West Virginia grow and prosper.  Our primary function is coordinating the legislative relations between the counties and the State, influencing legislation at the state capitol in Charleston that affects county government operations and their programs that impact the people.
