Because the AAP shares many of the same interests and concerns with the County Commissioners Association (CCAP), the state association representing counties, AAP became an affiliate of CCAP in 1998. AAP’s affiliation with CCAP means that the CCAP Executive Director also serves as the AAP Executive Director and CCAP provides administrative, financial, technological and planning support and services to AAP and its members.
As part of that affiliate agreement, all county chief assessors receive the following CCAP publications:
- The CCAP Legislative Bulletin, a bi-weekly recap of the activity in the Pennsylvania General Assembly and bills of interest to counties
- The CCAP Update, a bi-weekly update on general county issues
- The County News, a bi-monthly magazine focused on specific county issues
AAP also has non-voting seats on the CCAP’s Agriculture and Assessment and Taxation Committees.
