At its development and training conference held May 4 - 5, 2009 in Richmond , the Virginia Association of Community Services Boards (VACSB) elected Henrico Area Mental Health and Retardation Services (MH/MR) Executive Director Michael D. O'Connor to the office of Second Vice-Chair and as Chair of the Executive Director's Forum. Karen W. Grizzard, Business Supervisor for the County Attorney's Office and Vice-Chair of the Henrico Area MH/MR Services Board, was elected to the office of Secretary for a second one-year term and as Chair of the Joseph V. Gartlan Award Review Committee. Raymond C. Gudum, Three Chopt District representative on the MH/MR Services Board, is VACSB's Immediate Past Chair. Thomas J.

The County's Department of Public Relations & Media Services (PR&MS) has received 28 awards in the National Association of County Information Officers (NACIO) Awards of Excellence competition in recognition of the agency's work in graphic design, writing, photography, television production, and public information campaigns. The department's awards include five Superior awards, the highest citation given in an individual category. Staff members who won awards are as follows: Joel T. Archibald, Public Relations Specialist (seven awards); Steven L. Boyd, Television Producer/Director (six awards); Ryan C. Eubank, Senior Television Producer/Director (four awards); Steven W. Knockemus, Senior Public Relations Specialist (four awards); Tamra R. McKinney, Director (four awards); Benjamen A. Sheppard, Television Producer/Director (one award); and Geoffrey D. Weidele, Television Producer/Director (three awards). NACIO is the communications affiliate of the National Association of Counties, and the annual awards competition draws hundreds of entries from all over the country. Henrico won more awards than any other county in the nation in this year's competition. By comparison, Chesterfield County received eight awards.


Henrico County was notified on June 8, 2009 that 23 of its government programs are National Association of Counties (NACo) Achievement Award winners. The County submitted 41 programs to NACo for consideration in February 2009. Once again, Henrico led all counties in Virginia in the number of NACo awards received. Runners up were Chesterfield County (11 awards) and Fairfax County (8 awards). Only two counties in the nation earned more awards than Henrico, both of which are located in California and have much higher populations (Los Angeles, 9.9 million, and San Diego, 3 million).


Mr. Hazelett introduced Min-young Jeon, a management trainee from Yangju City, Henrico County's sister city in South Korea. Yangju City approached the County with an opportunity to host a management trainee for the purpose of stimulating understanding of the systems and culture in America and to promote relationships between Henrico and Yangju City. Ms. Jeon began a five-week internship with the County on June 1, 2009 and is dividing her time between the Human Resources Department and Division of Recreation and Parks. An employee within the Division volunteered to host Ms. Jeon during her stay in Henrico.
