The 2018 County Judges and Commissioners Association of Texas (CJCAT) State Conference will cover key issues affecting grassroots government, along with other important topics to assist with your daily operations as an elected official. The conference will kick off with a message from state officials, a legislative update from CJCAT General Counsel Jim Allison, and a panel of legislators who will discuss pressing county issues as we look toward the 86th Session of the Texas Legislature.
Approval for 17 hours of continuing education credit for County Commissioners is pending. This includes four hours of credit offered Wednesday afternoon in the Commissioners Court Advanced Curriculum Session. The County Judges Education Advisory Committee has approved four hours of judicial education credit for the Tuesday afternoon Judicial Education Session. County Judges may also obtain up to 16 hours of credit (non-judicial) toward Commissioners Court Advanced Curriculum by attending designated sessions. Commissioners Court Advanced Curriculum Completion Certificates will be awarded during Thursday’s closing luncheon.
The conference educational co-sponsor is the V.G. Young Institute of County Government, a part of the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service. Educational sessions will be complemented by an array of social activities including the President’s Party and Exhibitor Appreciation Night, Host Court Night, and our popular tournaments, along with a slate of spouses’ activities, all designed to help you network and reconnect with your peers from across the state while forging new friendships.
