North and East Texas County Judges and Commissioners Association Annual Conference

May 14, 2018
May 17, 2018

​Embassy Suites Frisco Hotel and Convention Center
7600 John Q Hammons Dr.
Frisco, TX 75034
(972) 712-7200

Our 2018 conference will focus on providing valuable information to support county government and aid commissioner courts to continually knock it out of the park. The conference will also highlight pertinent topics such as eminent domain, ordinance authority and the Rebuild Texas Fund. 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.

This year, the North and East Texas County Judges and Commissioners Association will offer some early bird sessions on Monday, May 14, that will feature four hours of administrative training for county commissioners court members.

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, May 15, including museum tours and shopping. Final details will be available soon.
