    TAC Legislative Conference

    In response to your feedback, we again will present this year's TAC Legislative Conference as a hybrid event (in person or online). We hear you and understand the demand to expand our services and offer multiple ways for you to connect with us.

    Join us in person or online Aug. 30-Sept. 1 as we continue to explore new ways to share important information with you and your county.

    The Texas Association of Counties' Legislative Conference offers county officials and staff unique opportunities to become more involved in the Texas legislative process. It is a time to learn how state lawmakers view pressing county issues and share how those views and issues affect local constituents.

    Join your peers in public service from across the state, either in person or virtually, at the premier conference for county government in Texas to get in-depth analysis of what transpired during the 88th Legislature. The conference focuses on important policy issues and how they affect county government and local taxpayers.

    What is a hybrid conference?

    A hybrid conference combines an in-person event with a virtual component. That means you can join us in person at the Fairmont Hotel in Austin, or you can join from your county through a virtual conference platform.

    Virtual Registration

    Once you have registered for the virtual event, a personalized participation link will be emailed to you a few days before the start of the program.
    Note: Event confirmation emails will come from to the email address that was used to register for the event.

    How to access the virtual event platform:
    Conference attendees will need to access the internet and use a browser to log in and join the virtual event. While almost all internet browsers (Google Chrome, Firefox, etc.) should allow the event to be accessed, we've found that it works most smoothly in Google Chrome, as other browsers may experience issues. Internet Explorer is not a supported browser for the event.

    Google Chrome is a free download. However, some county information technology departments may require county staff members to get approval before downloading new software.

    Special Services

    To ensure that our conference is ADA accessible to all, please contact Deanna Auert or Rachel Kucera at (800) 456‑5974 if you need assistance.
