Nieshalla elected president of ICCA


The Association of Indiana Counties announced Jan. 18 that Boone County Council President Elise Nieshalla has been elected president of the Indiana County Councils Association.

Nieshalla, a Republican and Zionsville resident, has served on the Boone County Council since 2016. She became president in 2021. She is also chairwoman of the Association of Indiana Counties’ Legislative Committee and was named 2018 Indiana County Councilor of the Year.


“Out of the gate, we are expanding our efforts to meet with county council members in each region to deliver top-priority legislative updates and share advocacy needs.” Nieshalla said.

Before being elected to the council, Nieshalla served on former Gov. Mitch Daniels’ economic development policy team. Her contributions included policies that established stronger executive branch oversight, reformed board responsibilities and revised hiring practices.

ICCA officers partner with the Indiana State Board of Accounts and the Association of Indiana Counties to plan and execute the annual conference, among other responsibilities.

Nieshalla works with Indiana state lawmakers to adjust tax matters along with the fiscal side of county and local governance to manage a budget with her private experience as an entrepreneur in real estate investment.

Nieshalla has been married to her husband, Chris, for 26 years. They have four children.
