County Gift Table

At the CCAP Annual Conference all registered CCAP members and registered guests have the opportunity to participate in several prize drawings at designated times identified in the Conference agenda. The drawing prizes are items donated by the counties attending the Conference. The donated gifts are usually from industries and attractions unique to each county and should be small gifts that can be hand-carried by attendees. Examples of gifts include gift certificates, museum, sporting event or attraction tickets, and other small easily-carried items. The prize drawings are a lot of fun for attendees and a nice way to share a little bit about your county with other Conference attendees.
