Horry County Government Wins National Achievement Award

Horry County Government’s App, HCConnect, has been recognized with an Achievement Award from the National Association of Counties (NACo). The awards honor innovative, effective county government programs that strengthen services for residents.

NACo recognized the Horry County Government HCConnect App with an Achievement Award in the category of Information Technology. HCConnect was created to provide a technology platform to inform, engage, and connect with the people of Horry County. This is a first of its kind app, developed completely in house, creating a direct channel for citizen driven communication and feedback.

Horry County Council Chairman Johnny Gardner said, “I am so pleased to see our organization recognized for this outstanding achievement. This app demonstrates our commitment to transparency and open government. I am proud of the efforts of our employees who work hard to serve our community every day.”

NACo President Greg Cox said, “Counties implement innovative programs that enhance residents’ quality of life every day. This year’s Achievement Award-winning programs demonstrate how counties build healthy, safe and vibrant communities across America.”

Nationally, awards are given in 18 different categories that reflect the vast, comprehensive services counties provide. The categories include children and youth, criminal justice, county administration, information technology, health, civic engagement and many more.

NACo will recognize award-winning counties at its 2019 Annual Conference and Exposition July 12-15 in Clark County, Nevada. 

Started in 1970, NACo’s annual Achievement Awards program is designed to recognize county government innovations. Each nominee is judged on its own merits and not against other applications received.

The National Association of Counties (NACo) unites America’s 3,069 county governments.  Founded in 1935, NACo brings county officials together to advocate with a collective voice on national policy, exchange ideas and build new leadership skills, pursue transformational county solutions, enrich the public’s understanding of county government and exercise exemplary leadership in public service.  Learn more at www.naco.org
