Secretary of State Jim Condos will be joining 37 other Secretaries and Lt. Governors in Washington, DC from Saturday, January 28th to Tuesday, January 31st to gather and discuss topics from presidential primary elections to new state voting laws. The nation’s Secretaries of State will focus on 2012 election preparations and top election administration issues during the National Association of Secretaries of State (NASS) 2012 Winter Conference.

“As a member of the NASS Business Identity Theft Task Force, I am excited that my committee will be releasing our new white paper with guidelines and recommendations for state policymakers who are dealing with the growing problem of business identity theft related to public business records. This issue is of grave concern to us here in Vermont, where we are working to get ahead of the curve and curb this pervasive problem before it becomes a real issue,” states Secretary Condos.

In addition, NASS members will be exchanging information and programming ideas on business services, state archives and museums, securities, international relations, social media and other issues of common interest.

“As Co-Chair of the Heritage Committee, I look forward to both offering suggestions and receiving input on issues related to state archives and museums,” stated Condos.

Founded in 1904, the National Association of Secretaries of State (NASS) is the oldest, nonpartisan professional organization of public officials in the United States. Members include the 50 states, the District of Columbia, American Samoa and Puerto Rico.

Secretary of State Jim Condos has over 20 years of elected public service, including 18 years at the local level and 8 years as a Vermont State Senator, in addition to more than 30 years of private sector business experience.
