More than 220 county officials and staff attended the second session in the 2019 Basics of County Investments Course series, which was held June 3-5 in San Antonio. While the program is open to all those interested in the essentials of investing public funds, it is required for membership in the TAC County Investment Academy. The Academy provides investment education through a variety of conferences and workshops. Through training, attendees have access to accurate, in-depth information as well as a network of experienced county investors from across the state. Through a partnership with the McCoy College of Business at Texas State University, the Academy benefits from the participation of McCoy College faculty, whose members comprise the County Investment Education Committee. This group plans training, reviews course content and teach courses at the Academy. County employees become members of the Academy through completion of the Basics of County Investment Course (formerly the County Investment Officer Level I Training.)
