ACCG honors Fred DeLoach

ATLANTA — ACCG, Georgia’s county association, recently recognized past association presidents at the 2014 ACCG Annual Conference and Centennial Celebration in Savannah/Chatham County. Former Lowndes County Chairman Fred DeLoach was among 26 other ACCG past presidents recognized for their contributions and achievements during their tenure as president of the state’s county association. He served as ACCG president from 1989-1990.  

“Any anniversary celebration, especially one as monumental as a centennial, would not be complete without honoring an organization’s leadership legacy,” said ACCG Executive Director Ross King. “ACCG is fortunate to have served the state and its county governments for 100 years. Most importantly, we are fortunate to have had the diverse association leadership that has allowed our organization to maintain its momentum and progression over the past century.”

DeLoach served as ACCG president from 1989-1990. Providing more options to counties in the area of member services was a highlight of his tenure as president of the state’s county association.

Under his leadership, ACCG introduced its first member services program to counties- the Equipment Leasing Program. ACCG also organized the Lease Pool Program which afforded counties the same advantages that businesses enjoy with lease purchases. Today, the ACCG member services program has evolved to include partnerships with businesses and other organizations that provide services ranging from technology to car rental services.

Two thousand and fourteen marks the 100th year anniversary for ACCG, Georgia’s county association. This year will be filled with educational initiatives that will not only help to better inform Georgians about the significance of county government, but it will also educate everyone about the history of ACCG. The association has evolved from an organization of commissioners of roads and revenue to one that provides services in four defined areas to help advance all 159 of Georgia’s county governments.

Through the leadership development pillar, ACCG hosts various conferences and events for its members to help cultivate and expand their leadership skills.
