The award signifies a sustained excellence for three years; however, Los Alamos has actually been awarded sustained excellence for the last 22 years in a row. NMAC is a non-profit, nonpartisan professional association of County officials and employees working to advance the public’s vital interest in effective, efficient and responsive local government. It serves as a statewide voice for New Mexico’s counties, promoting the idea that all County elected officials and employees must have the opportunity to act together to solve problems and to work for shared progress and prosperity.
