This year's conference theme is #BeTheDifference. We are a diverse group of 254 professionals working together toward common goals….to educate, support, and advance the office of County Tax Assessor-Collector. TACA supports and promotes the idea that all County Tax Assessor-Collectors have the opportunity to act together in order to solve mutual problems as a unified group. It doesn’t matter the size of your county; from Loving to Harris and everyone in-between, we all make a difference.

Bingo

Bingo will take place on Tuesday evening at the Omni Hotel. Get your “Bingo!” voice ready. It’s sure to be a fun night with great prizes.

Advanced Course

This year the advanced certification course will be conducted on Sunday before the start of the conference.  Check out the draft program for times. The topic of this year’s session is team building.  

Lunches

Join us Monday to honor friends who have passed and to congratulate those who receive awards and education certificates. Come to the lunch on Tuesday to show your appreciation for our sponsors.

Only elected officials will be allowed to book a hotel room at the Omni Hotel or the Holiday Inn on March 1. The hotel will cancel reservations made on that date by nonelected officials. Hotel reservations for nonelected officials will open at 9 a.m. Wednesday, March 3.

You must register for the conference first before booking a hotel room. After registering, you will receive an email with the hotel reservation link.

The deadline to reserve rooms at the group rate is May 5 or until the block is full. All reservations received after this date will be accepted on a space-available basis and at the prevailing hotel rates.

Please note: As in years past, TACA anticipates the room block to fill quickly. In the event the block becomes full, a waitlist will be kept on a first-come, first-served basis. To be placed on the waitlist, contact Megan West at meganw@county.org or (800) 456-5974. You will be contacted when a room becomes available.

To cancel your conference registration or hotel reservation, please email Megan West at meganw@county.org. This will help move fellow attendees off the waitlist. We kindly request that you not post your reservation on the TACA listserv, because this hinders waitlist management.

Cancellations must be made 72 hours before 4 p.m. on the day of arrival, or the cost of the first night’s room plus tax will be charged to the credit card on file.
