Here you will find local, state and national resources to amplify the work of your Complete Count Committee.
How Do You Organize a Complete Count Committee?
There are three types of complete count committees – state government-sponsored, local government-sponsored, or community-sponsored. Knowing the differences between committee types will help determine how to form your Complete Count Committee.
State Government CCCs
Kansas’ governor appoints individuals to serve as members of the Kansas Complete Count Committee. The Kansas Department of Commerce provides support, as feasible, given existing resources to support the mission and activities of the committee. The Kansas CCC will promote and advertise the 2020 Census, respond to questions and concerns about the census, focus available resources on hard-to-count areas and populations, and ensure the highest participation rate possible.
Local or Tribal Government CCCs
Local Complete Count Committees are formed by the highest elected official in that jurisdiction, such as a mayor, county commissioner, or tribal leader. The highest elected official may appoint a chair of the CCC and appoint residents of the community to serve as members of the CCC. The size and number of members depends on what works best for each community and what will make the most effective and successful committee. Mayors, county commissioners, and heads of regional boards understand the importance of a complete and accurate census count as well as how census data impacts their communities.
Community Complete Count Committees are often formed in areas that do not have a government CCC or areas that may require a more targeted approach. Community CCCs may be formed by a community organization or a coalition of several organizations. Community CCCs identify their own chair and committee members and may choose residents who are influential leaders or gatekeepers in the community to serve as members or others that will help accomplish the goals of the committee. Community CCCs consists of anywhere from 5 to 25 members depending on the sponsoring organization(s) and the size of the community it represents.
If you are a member of the Kansas Complete Count Committee; affiliated with a state agency, county or city government, or local Complete Count Committee Chair, use the following Government Resources for your strategies.
