TAGD Trainings

Public Funds Investment Act Training - June 8, 2021

TAGD is proud to offer a Public Funds Investment Act Training, taught by Greg Ellis, that focuses on the requirements and challenges faced by groundwater conservation districts. This training will be held in conjunction with our June Regular Business Meeting (more information here, registration is separate) in Austin. If your district has a board or staff member that needs this training but is uncomfortable with traveling or gathering in-person, please contact us. We may be able to offer a livestream option if there is sufficient interest. 

Cybersecurity Awareness Training

As part of TAGD’s mission to serve as an educational resource to its members, TAGD is thrilled to be offering our members a free, on-demand Cybersecurity Awareness Training program certified by the Texas Department of Information Resources. Thanks to our amazing sponsors for supporting this program!


House Bill 3834 from the 86th regular session of the Texas Legislature amended section 2054 of the Texas Government Code to require completion of a certified cybersecurity awareness program by all local government employees with government computer system access, as well as all elected officials.
