    In 2000, a collaborative workshop was held for the residents of Brown County to identify issues that need to be addressed in the county. Communication among the communities in Brown County was identified as major concern.
     
    A gathering of the key elected and appointed officials was proposed as a means to strengthen communication, build partnerships among agencies in the Brown County area, and focus on goals and strategic planning.
     
    The Brown County Congress has been meeting quarterly since the spring of 2000, with participants finding it to be an excellent opportunity to gather information and identify resources.
