County supervisors provide regional leadership over critical policy areas, including policies necessary to ensure safe communities, protect public health, promote economic development, and plan and manage land use for sustainable development. Supervisors also provide important oversight of county operations, including overseeing strategies to promote sound fiscal management and to develop a high-quality county government workforce.
For more than 30 years, the CSA has served as a non-partisan forum for county officials to address important issues facing local constituents, providing a mechanism to share information and to develop a proactive state and federal policy agenda.
CSA membership includes the 61 elected supervisors from Arizona's 15 counties. The association's efforts are strengthened by the involvement of top-level county professional staff, who provide technical expertise necessary to inform policy discussions.
All supervisors serve on the CSA Board of Directors and provide input into organizational strategy and the evaluation of operational performance. Annually, the Board elects six members to serve in CSA leadership positions. Each county appoints a representative to the Legislative Policy Committee (LPC). The LPC meets as often as necessary to evaluate legislative measures and make policy recommendations to the full Board.
