The Economic Development Sales Tax Workshop are designed specifically for EDC Board Members and local elected officials and include information about economic and community development in general, and changes to the Economic Development Sales Tax Law.
The workshops will include a discussion of changes to the Economic Development Sales Tax law that occurred during the 86th session of the Texas Legislature. Workshop attendees will receive Open Meetings Act and Public Information Act certification as a part of this course.
After much consideration of our current situation relating to COVID-19 and the imposition of safety protocols and social distancing measures as a result of the pandemic, the TEDC has decided to host our two (2) Economic Development Sales Tax Workshops scheduled for August, 2020 (Waco on 8/14/20 and Lubbock on 8/28/20) in a virtual format.
Beginning on August 14, 2020, registrants will have access to a Dropbox file that will contain reference materials and copies of the presentations.
On August 28, 2020, TEDC will have a live Q&A session at 10:00 AM via Zoom with the workshop presenters. Registrants will have the opportunity to ask questions during the live Q&A with the workshop presenters. The live Q&A session is not mandatory, but recommended.
