About the NCVOA

Founded in 1925, the Nassau County Village Officials Association (NCVOA) is a not-for-profit organization comprising and representing all of Nassau County’s 64 villages with 475,000 residents.  It was created for the purpose of encouraging and stimulating cooperation among its member villages for their mutual benefit and welfare.  While the NCVOA is not a municipal organization, it strives to meet the highest ethical standards and is sensitive to the legal and ethical restriction of its member villages.  To that end, the NCVOA is dedicated to providing village officials with a forum for exchanging ideas and experiences in the administration of their municipal duties; developing educational programs and conferences to assist village officials with implementing their civic responsibilities; studying and discussing various activities and actions that will benefit the public safety, health and welfare of our member villages governed by these officials; and investigating and discussing the most efficient means and methods of village government.
