North and East Texas County Judges and Commissioners Association Annual Conference

May 15, 2017
May 18, 2017

Holiday Inn & Suites Beaumont
3950 I-10 South & Walden Rd
Beaumont, TX 77705
(409) 842-5995

Our 2017 conference will focus on building a solid foundation and highlighting pertinent news resulting from the 85th legislative session. The conference will also highlight pertinent topics such as Basic Taxation: Property Tax and Revenue Caps, Septic System Issues and The Long-Term Effects of Short-Term Decisions of the Commissioners Court. This event also provides a great opportunity to get together with fellow judges and commissioners from North and East Texas and across the state.

The agenda is crafted to include the latest information on hot topics in county government as well as advanced curriculum sessions. However, not all of the learning will take place in the classroom. You may network with other officials during golf or domino tournaments on Wednesday afternoon or during other events, such as the Exhibitor Appreciation Reception on Monday, Host Court Night on Tuesday and the Installation Luncheon on Thursday.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of this conference, you’ll be able to:
  • Demonstrate new leadership skills through knowledge, training and ideas gained from educational sessions;
  • Better understand the duties of other county offices and the role they play in county government; and
  • Better understand the legislative issues effecting Texas county government.

Spouses Activities

Activities for spouses will be arranged for Tuesday and Wednesday, including museum tours and shopping. Final details will be available on county.org.
