2020 Preparing To Take Office Workshop

2020 Preparing To Take Office Workshop

The campaign is over and on Jan. 1 you will be a county official. Now what? The Texas Association of Counties (TAC) is here to help you. 

“Preparing to Take Office” is a one-day workshop for all newly elected county officials that educates you on basic issues and gives you the information necessary to avoid making mistakes that result in embarrassment, or worse, legal problems.  There are many unfamiliar statutes and rules you must understand before officially taking office. A faculty of Association staff and specialists will explain the basics of important subjects such as nepotism, discrimination, purchasing, open meetings, open records, budgeting and general employment law.

If you need to cancel your registration, please email Amy Lawson or Megan West.

Access to Virtual Event via Internet 
Attendees will need access to the internet to login and join the virtual event. While almost all internet browsers (Google Chrome, Firefox, etc.) should allow the event to be accessed, we’ve found that it works most smoothly in Google Chrome, as other browsers may experience issues. Internet Explorer is not a supported browser for the event. Google Chrome is a free download, however, some counties’ IT departments may require that your staff gains approval prior to being able to download new software.
