In 2014 TAGD launched a “GCD 101” training initiative. Our Leadership Training course is designed for GCD board members and new general managers or staff members who would benefit from a comprehensive overview of local government laws, groundwater science and policy, and other matters related to groundwater management. The one day course includes a review of four fundamental sectors in groundwater management: GCD governance, groundwater science, groundwater case law, and state agencies and legislation.
TAGD plans to host a Leadership Training in the fall of 2017. Stayed tuned for more details.
TAGD hosted a Leadership Training on October 27, 2016 in Austin.

Our first-ever Leadership Training was a huge success! It was held in Lubbock, Texas in partnership with High Plains Underground Water Conservation District No. 1 (HPWD). The two-day training course was held at the Bayer Museum of Agriculture, September 16-17, 2014. We had an excellent networking dinner at Cagle’s Steakhouse on Tuesday evening with a presentation by Representative Lyle Larson. Our training speakers included TWDB Board Member Bech Bruun, hydrogeologists, attorneys, and public relations experts.
