CDCAT President's Welcome

Welcome to the County & District Clerks' Association of Texas!

The CDCAT is dedicated to education and professionalism.  We embrace new clerks and offer them the tools necessary to learn and grow to become a confident and educated county or district clerk.  It takes a community of clerks to achieve our goals and keep our members informed.  The association encourages clerks to serve on committees, present educational topics at conferences, serve on the board of directors and mentor new clerks.  Many clerks have gone on to serve in higher levels of local government, the legislature and state agencies.

This year's education theme is "Unlocking your Potential, within the Association, your County and Yourself".  Personal growth is the key goal with each conference focusing on one of the areas within the theme.  We will delve into what can be done to bring you out of your comfort zone in order to grow as a person and effect positive change both professionally and personally.  We will show you how collaboration and volunteerism can improve your life and expand your learning capabilities.

The association strives to form a collaborative relationship with our county officials and members of the legislative, judicial and executive branches of state government.  Please join me in building new and stronger relationships within our counties, the CDCAT and the State of Texas.

Let's grow together and effect positive change!
