COLLEGE STATION - The 30th annual County Treasurers’ Continuing Education Seminar is scheduled for April 15-18 at the University Center Complex at Texas A&M University in College Station.
“Over 250 county treasurers and treasurers’ office personnel, representing more than 200 Texas counties, are expected to attend,” said John Gilmartin, Texas Cooperative Extension coordinator with the V.G. Young Institute of County government.
The theme of this year’s seminar, “Pursuing Fiscal Integrity,” blends administrative responsibilities of county treasurers with a focus on investment policies. Topics of discussion will include callable securities, clearinghouse depositories, New Health Plan Privacy Regulations, and collateralizing deposits, as well as motivating treasurers’ office personnel.
“Texas is one of a few states that require county officials to earn continuing education credits during their time in office,” Gilmartin said. “Country treasurers are required to have 20 hours of continuing education per year, and this seminar is one of the places where they earn that credit.”
Those attending the April seminar will receive continuing education credit from the Office of Continuing Education at Texas A&M.
In addition, V.G. Young Institute of County Government also coordinates educational conferences yearly in College Station, and smaller seminars throughout the state, for county tax assessor-collectors, county and district clerks, and county judges and commissioners.
