In October 2022, the County Judges and Commissioners Association of Texas will conduct its 100th Annual State Conference. Texas County Judges and Commissioners, known for their servant leadership, have joined together for a century to not only educate themselves as required by law, but to also learn and grow from one another’s experiences.
As the Official Publication of the County Judges and Commissioners Association of Texas, County Progress has been privileged to record the history of hundreds of regional and state meetings along with county news from across the Lone Star State.
We will continue to celebrate a Century of Service with glimpses into each decade. This month, we take a glance back at 2000-2010!
