CDCAT President's Welcome


Welcome to the County and District Clerks’ Association of Texas official Website.

2019-2020 is going to be an amazing year for all of us! As County and District Clerks for the Great State of Texas, we have incredible opportunities to collaborate with those around us to bring new ideas, gain a better understanding of our roles and solidify a new direction for our upcoming year.

There is a wealth of knowledge in this wonderful organization, particularly from our seasoned clerks. I have no doubt that you will share your wisdom with our many new clerks who may seek your guidance and mentorship. We are all called to fulfill our constitutional and statutory duties while providing responsive government services to those we serve. This would not be possible were it not for our strong network and ongoing collaboration.

“Deeply Rooted in History” is this year’s educational theme, which derives from the historical significance our roles have played since the adoption of our Texas Constitution. County, District and Combination Clerks are an integral part of County Government and have worked diligently to maintain our strong tradition of integrity, knowledge and service.

I am truly privileged to be serving in this capacity and am grateful for having been embraced by this organization for the last 13 years. I'm excited for our year together and look forward to working with each of you.

With Best Wishes,

Laura Hinojosa

CDCAT President 2019-2020

District Clerk, Hidalgo County
