Blair to host conference

HOLLIDAYSBURG — Blair County will host the 2020 summer conference organized by the Pennsylva­nia Association of County Controllers.

The association’s five-day event, starting July 19, 2020, is expected to draw about 100 registrants, including controllers, deputies, solicitors and staff, said Blair County Controller A.C. Stickel, who announced the event.

At Tuesday’s weekly commissioners meeting, Stickel offered a promotional video that will be used to encourage attendance. In addition to educational workshops, Stickel said the conference offers an opportunity to show off Blair County’s history, recreation, industry, food, shopping and entertainment.

“While there are many benefits to our county, we want to make clear there is no cost to Blair County for hosting this conference,” Stickel said.

Anyone interested in being a conference sponsor or providing promotional items should contact Stickel for more information.
