National Association of Black County Officials Welcomes Fulton DA Fani Willis in Miami

The National Association of Black County Officials (NABCO) recently held their 2024 Leadership Summit & Retreat at the InterContinental Miami and gave a warm welcome to Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, who charged former President Donald Trump in Georgia.

Organizers describe the event as “empowering” and said it facilitated networking, knowledge sharing, and strategic advocacy for African-American elected and appointed county officials nationwide.

In addition to Fulton County DA Fani Willis, guest speakers included journalists Jeff Johnson and Roland Martin, US Congresswoman Frederica Wilson, Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava, Executive Director of the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition Desmond Meade, and others.

The Summit & Retreat featured sessions and networking opportunities, allowing attendees to connect with industry leaders and peers to drive positive change in their communities. The event culminated with a celebration to honor Black trailblazers for their contributions to communities.

There’s no word if Fulton County DA Fani Willis took a detour to see Mar-a-Lago to see Trump while she was in South Florida.

“This event served as a testament to our unwavering dedication to empowering Black county officials and amplifying their voices in the decision-making process,” said Miami-Dade County Commissioner Kionne McGhee, President of NABCO. “By convening in Miami, we not only fostered a supportive environment for collaboration and growth but also symbolized our collective resolve to drive meaningful change and representation within our communities. Together, we forged a path towards a future where every voice is heard, every perspective valued, and every opportunity realized.”

Key highlights included discussions on leadership and advocacy, emphasizing the role of Black leadership in shaping politics and advancing social justice. NABCO said it remains steadfast in its commitment to advocacy and amplifying the voices of African-American county officials, serving as a vital forum for networking, information sharing, and issue advocacy since 1975.

The National Association of Black County Officials (NABCO) is a leading advocacy organization representing African-American elected and appointed county officials across the United States.
