Welcome to County Executives of America (CEA), the only non-partisan association dedicated specifically to chief elected county officials. Our organization has spent over 40 years helping county leaders reach their goals.
Whether you are interested in strong advocacy, economic development, grant and appropriations research, legislative and regulatory analysis, or if you simply want to participate in a working dialogue with your colleagues across the country, County Executives of America can help you.
CEA began as a league formed by county executives who believed that the job as the chief elected officer of a county was too important to overlook. Their initial desire to create an alliance that would assist county officers in executing their duties sparked a dramatic evolution that produced today's association of over 700 counties.
CEA's current membership includes County Executives, County Judges, Parish and Borough Presidents, City-County Mayors, Commission Presidents and Chairs, and all county leaders elected at-large by the public constituency.
