'Tis the TAG Season 
Surprise snow, holiday humidity and drastic degree changes  - yes, it's winter in Houston!  TAG is feeling extra warm this year as we celebrate our successes, amazing members and plans for 2018.  We have a brand new logo, enhanced website and a bright new MotionMAP to be unveiled at our January 22nd event.  Don't forget to renew your current membership or join us as a new member using our new payment platform here.

TAG wishes our entire region the happiest of holidays as you gather with family and friends in making memories to last a lifetime.  Travel safely amidst the hustle and bustle and have a wonderful New Year!  

Our annual holiday member lunch featured Comptroller Glenn Hegar with an in-depth discussion on our state's current budget outlook, the impact of Harvey and possible avenues of funding for transportation and beyond. 

Comptroller Hegar shared his thoughts in this brief video interview on the importance of mobility prior to the event and took time to answer several questions from TAG members. 

We look forward to working with his office as we prepare for the 2019 legislative session.  See if you made our special recap photo reel!
