CCAWV’s annual conference and the State Auditor’s training is quickly approaching! This year, the conference will take place at the Waterfront Place Hotel in Morgantown, August 9th through the 11th.

This year’s meeting theme is “Play Ball!” We encourage you to wear t-shirts or jerseys in support of your favorite team to the evening events.

Please plan to join us for our Sunday evening “Kickoff” reception, featuring special guest speaker Tony Caridi! We are excited to have Mr. Caridi, “the most recognizable sports voice” in West Virginia, join us! We couldn’t think of a more appropriate way to begin our program, and are thrilled he is able to join us.

The CCAWV Board of Directors and Legislative Committee convened in Martinsburg (Berkeley County) on Sunday, May 17th for their spring meeting. Berkeley County Council President, Doug Copenhaver, and council member Elaine Mauck were on hand to greet their fellow commissioners and welcome the group to lovely Berkeley County.

The spring meeting provides an opportunity to discuss the recently wrapped Legislative Session. CCAWV’s lobbyist, Steve Kominar, was there to give his prospective on the session and report on CCAWV’s legislative priorities.

At the recent board meeting, members discussed the importance of aligning our legislative initiatives earlier in our process, which will include adopting our official agenda prior to the August annual meeting. That will give us a better opportunity to communicate those positions with the entire membership, answer questions and gather commitment! We'll reinforce those positions and seek legislative sponsors during our fall regional meetings!

We sincerely hope you'll do your part to submit any legislative issues earlier and join/support our efforts to strengthen your CCAWV legislative message!

Our board met in Martinsburg, WV on May 17-18 at the Holiday Inn and Suites. It was a very good Board meeting with lots of discussion and interaction among members.

The attendance was great!

Doug Copenhaver and Elaine Mauck , members of the Berkeley County Council welcomed us to the county and contributed much to our weekend.

In June, CCAWV will be hosting a trio of regional training sessions across the state.

Training sessions are open to anyone interested in attending! There is no fee for CCAWV members, and only a $20 registration fee for attendees from a nonmember county. Light lunch will be provided. Some of the topics to be covered include:
