CAPCOG General Assembly set for Sept. 14

Friday, August 12, 2016

The September General Assembly meeting will mark the start of a new fiscal year as CAPCOG member representatives consider the proposed $32.7 million budget. The other primary duty of the membership is to select the new nominating committee that will recommend the 2017 Executive Committee for elections at the  December General Assembly. The meeting and luncheon will take place at 11:30 a.m., Sept. 14, at the Omni Hotel Southpark, 4140 Governors Row in Austin. CAPCOG Member Services Coordinator Mason Canales will begin receiving nominations for the Executive Committee in mid-September; eligible candidates are elected city and county officials who serve on the General Assembly.

Following the September meeting, the Texas Comptroller’s Office and the Texas Association of School Boards will lead a two-hour, Procurement and Cooperative Purchasing Workshop for local elected officials. The workshop will cover procurement best practices and explain how joining cooperative purchasing groups can benefit cities, counties, school districts and other local jurisdictions. Representatives from purchasing cooperatives such as BuyBoards, Purchasing Solution Alliance, and TxSmartBuy will discuss the advantages of joining their cooperatives and the types of purchasing in which they specialize.
