    TAC Legislative Conference

    The 2024 TAC Legislative Conference is essential to preparing for the 89th Legislature, which convenes Jan. 14, 2025. The conference offers information about the biggest issues in county government today. Connect with your fellow county officials, state legislators and issue experts to discuss what's important to your county and constituents.

    TAC's 2024 Legislative Conference will follow our successful hybrid model and will give registrants the option of choosing to attend either in person or virtually. Creating a hybrid conference stands as another example of how TAC manages to offer multiple ways for its members to connect with the association and with one another.

    Join us in person or online Aug. 28-30 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 their staff members 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.

    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

    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. Although 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.
