About Us

The County Commissioners Association of Pennsylvania (CCAP) is the voice of Pennsylvania counties. CCAP provides county leaders with information and guidance related to legislation, education, media, insurance, technology and many other issues that help create and maintain crucial services for residents throughout the state.

CCAP supports county leadership that is responsive to the needs and circumstances of citizens. CCAP stands firmly against state and federal actions that limit fiscal, administrative or programmatic authority over those developed locally.

Founded in 1886, CCAP is an affiliate of the National Association of Counties.  

 

 VISION STATEMENT

 
The County Commissioners Association of Pennsylvania (CCAP) and its member counties are committed to excellence in county government. CCAP will provide a strong, unified voice for the Commonwealth’s 67 counties. CCAP will advocate for and provide leadership on those issues that will enhance and strengthen the ability of county commissioners to better serve their citizens and govern more effectively and efficiently. CCAP will be the source counties turn to first for information, education, resources and services.
 

 MISSION STATEMENT

 

The County Commissioners Association of Pennsylvania is a statewide, nonprofit, bipartisan association representing the commissioners, chief clerks, administrators, their equivalents in home rule counties, and solicitors of Pennsylvania's sixty-seven counties.

The Association serves to strengthen Pennsylvania counties' ability to govern their own affairs and improve the well-being and quality of life of their constituents.  To this end, the Association effects the achievement of favorable state and federal legislation, programs and policies, and provides appropriate programs, services and training to its membership, county leaders, and their staff.

The Association strives to educate and inform the public, administrative, legislative and regulatory bodies, decision makers, and the media about county government.
