​Application and TAC Scholarship

“For years, I’ve listened to a daily diet of leadership-related podcasts, but almost all are designed for leaders in the for-profit sector, none for leading a governmental agency. This program powerfully addresses how and why to best lead a Texas governmental agency and its people.” Collin County District Attorney Greg Willis, Class of 2019-2020

County officials must apply between June 1 and Sept. 18 to be considered for the Leadership 2021-2022 class. There is no registration fee, TAC will provide scholarships to those selected to attend.
