New Treasurers' Seminar

December 11 - 14, 2018

Embassy Suites San Marcos Hotel
1001 E. McCarty Lane
San Marcos, TX 78666

Newly elected county treasurers from around the state gather for this all-important conference—an essential step in preparing to take the oath of office in January.

The New Treasurers Seminar will cover the basic core duties of the office of county treasurer, examining responsibilities such as depository contracts and public fund investments. Sessions will also delve into human resource issues and the resource materials available to treasurers taking office for the first time. This four-day conference was planned, in large part, by experienced county treasurers, who will serve as presenters at many of the sessions and will be present to talk informally with attendees. These veterans welcome questions and the chance to share their experiences in office.
