WASHINGTON – The Orange County Clerk-Recorder Department has been recognized with an Achievement Award from the National Association of Counties (NACo). The awards honor innovative, effective county government programs that strengthen services for residents.

NACo recognized “COVID-19: Hitched at Honda Center through Marriage Services”, in the award category of County Administration and Management. The Hitched at Honda Center program allowed the department to reimagine the marriage services process. Through thoughtful planning, training, and management, staff worked from inside ticket booths at Honda Center in Anaheim, California that had all the resources needed to be fully functional despite operating from a remote location. This allowed the department to continue rendering essential marriage services to its customers in a totally reimagined manner despite the pandemic.
