About Us

We know county officials work hard to accommodate the needs of the people they serve and to remain effective leaders. County Executives of America provides its members with the voice they need to remain strong politically and economically.

CEA works directly with principal decision-makers in all areas of the federal government, so our members get their needs heard and questions answered.

We also work with private sector business leaders from around the world to create economic opportunities for our members’ local communities and offer valuable county programs that help our members cut county costs and improve local services.


Message from the CEA President

I am proud to say that I have been serving in a leadership role with CEA for eight years and as president for the last four. The one thing I don’t have to tell any of you is how difficult the past few years have been for counties as we navigated the scourge of opioid addiction, COVID-19 and an economy struggling as a result of the pandemic. Through it all, we have been successful because we have been able to listen and learn from each other and present a unified voice. Together, we have sent a message to pharmaceutical companies that opioids have ravaged our communities and they are responsible. Together, we have helped each other with COVID-19 challenges by sending each other PPE and test kits and sharing best practices. Together, we talking about the financial struggles we are facing to offer solutions. CEA is stronger than ever because our county leaders are working together for the good of all our residents.
