TAC’s recent Preparing to Take Office workshops were well attended and well received. We traveled to Tyler, McAllen, Conroe, Odessa, Lubbock, Waco, Abilene and San Antonio, covering topics ranging from Open Meetings to working with the Legislature. We were excited to meet and shake hands with many of our new county officials. We would especially like to thank the seasoned elected officials who attended the luncheon portion of the workshops to visit and share their wisdom with the newly elected officials. It’s always a pleasure to see our county officials, both new and veteran, working together and sharing ideas. We look forward to working with all of you in the upcoming legislative session.
