Packed Lunch Series

Packed Lunch Website Banner

“Packed Lunch” will occur every second Wednesday of the month from 12:00PM – 1:00PM and host content experts to lead conversation on topics relevant to county officials.

 Different than WACO’s normally scheduled educational training, this event will be a two-way conversation for speakers to not only present expert subject matter, but also listen to the current challenges county officials are facing related to each topic.
