CDCAT President's Welcome
Welcome to the County and District Clerks’ Association of Texas official Website.
Welcome to the County and District Clerks’ Association of Texas official Website:
I am deeply honored and humbled to serve as the CDCAT President for the coming year July 2017 – June 2018. Serving as your Secretary, Treasurer and Vice President, over the past several years has given me insight as to how and what our Association stands for and what it represent.
CDCAT’s purpose is "to promote professional standards, provide a means for the education of its members regarding the statutory and constitutional duties of the offices of the county clerks and district clerks, and participate in the legislative, judicial, and executive processes of state government that are beneficial to our association." As a member of CDCAT, your involvement is crucial to the success of the goals of our association.
Our Association certainly has had highs and lows. A big thank you goes to the Legislative Committee, Casteel and Roberts, Karen Gladney and Nannette Forbes, along with the reSearchTX committee. They did an outstanding job working with all our legislative bills. Clerks, you need to be commended as well because once the call came the majority of you stepped up to the plate by calling your Representatives and Senators. One thing for sure, they now know we are a force to be reckoned with.
The Education committee is gearing up for a great year. We are working closely with the Texas Association of Counties and have expanded our education conferences throughout the year. We have eliminated the spring conference and added a fall conference to better accommodate our members in being able to attend the conferences for their continuing education hours. There are several continuing education opportunities listed on our website home page for our membership to be able to obtain their required 20 CE hours.
I look forward to a great year of building relationships and working together as a team with everyone, to see our ideas come to fruition, so by "Leading the Way; What is your Destination?"
CDCAT President 2017 - 2018
