Counties at the Capitol Legislative Day

Counties at the Capitol Legislative Day
TAC's Counties at the Capitol event on Feb. 7 will dig into the big issues facing county government in the 88th Legislature. TAC Legislative Services' new and returning team members will be there to assist.

Shortly after the Texas Legislature convenes, county officials will gather in Austin for TAC's Counties at the Capitol day. The event will get attendees up to speed on the most significant issues facing county government in the 88th legislative session. The day-long program offers ample opportunity for county officials to connect with their legislators and their staffs.

TAC members will receive an email for registration. If you did not receive an email to register, please contact Amy Ruedas at (512) 478-8753 ext. 541 or amyr@county.org.

Once you have registered for the virtual event, a personalized participation link will be emailed to you a few days before the start of the program. 
Note: Event confirmation emails will come from Events@Accelevents.com to the email address that was used to register for the event.

How to access the virtual event platform:
Members will need to access the internet and use a browser to log in 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 county information technology departments may require county staff to get approval before downloading new software.

For members attending virtually, if you need assistance before or during the meeting, contact Deanna Auert at (512) 615-8979.

If you need to cancel your registration, please call Deanna Auert at (800) 456-5974.
