The Texas Association of Counties (TAC) has revamped its website with new interactive features, an updated design and fine-tuned navigation to help members easily access the important services, resources and information they need. The site is at the same www.county.org address.
New Interactive Features
The site’s new Member Portal allows Association members to update their contact info and securely register and pay for TAC events. First-time visitors to the portal will find simple instructions to get their username and log on.
Another new feature is the County Jobs Roundup. Official county human resource officers can use the page to post open county government positions after sending a request to TACMembership@county.org for access. Job hunters can visit the Roundup to browse postings.
In addition, members of TAC’s Health and Employee Benefits Pool (TAC HEBP) and TAC’s Risk Management Pool (TAC RMP) can now quickly locate the staff teams in the TAC Health Benefits Services and the TAC Risk Management Services departments who serve them. Members can simply select their county on an interactive map or choose it from a drop-down list to see staff contact information.
Easy Access to TAC Resources
TAC fine-tuned the site’s navigation based on testing with members to make it more intuitive for users. The updated design ensures that it works well on any desktop or mobile device.
The new homepage makes it easy for every TAC member to find the most relevant news and information. The site’s design includes easy-to-scan text, an uncluttered layout and related content links on pages to help members get where they are going.
The changes will help members quickly locate what they’re looking for from the Association’s wide variety of member services and resources. Navigation connects visitors to everything from education and training events, legal and legislative resources and technology services, to the many wellness and risk management programs and services available to members of the TAC HEBP and TAC RMP. Pool members will also find it easy to file a claim online and connect with the Online Administrative System (OASys).
County News and Information
Site visitors will find the latest articles from County magazine and a variety of TAC newsletters that cover legislative issues, wellness, risk management, county best practices and other county news.
Those who want to learn more about county government will find an array of information, including the duties and continuing education requirements of county officials, county elections data and county maps.
The site also connects visitors to the Texas Counties Deliver website at www.texascountiesdeliver.org and its public outreach materials and tips to make it easy for officials to spread the word about how Texas counties deliver, including more than a dozen sharable videos about county government.
TAC last redesigned its website in 2012.
