We make life easier for counties and county officials.

Education

Where does one get marriage and business licenses? Who provides public safety? What support is available to provide local services or recreational needs? The people can find those answers and more on this site and by contacting WVACo and learning Why county government matters.

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.

Counties make WV go!

We are fifty-five in all, contributing to the un-matched quality of life that is West Virginia. A rich history of coal, glass, natural gas, and timbering, America was built on the backs West Virginians. Tourism is now a growing industry, from hiking & biking, whitewater, skiiing and more…West Virginia Counties have it all.

WVACo is a resource for county government officials and staff to keep “in the know” about each other, about state law and its impact on counties and their citizens, and learn about national trends and issues facing counties across the country to help West Virginia grow and prosper.
