EUGENE, Ore. - Decision makers from counties across Oregon met in Eugene on Tuesday for the first day of the annual Associations of Oregon Counties Conference.
This is the only conference that brings elected officials and county staff from around the state together.
Attendees meet for three days to discuss topics like education and networking.
Sessions are also held that aim to improve the lives of residents and the efficiency of government.
"Counties are often an invisible form of government," said Mike McArthur from the Association of Oregon Counties.
The conference is being held at the Hilton in downtown Eugene and runs through November 16.
