Newly elected Van Zandt County Commissioners Brandon Brown and Bobby Chaney are back in Van Zandt County this week after attending the Newly Elected County Judges and Commissioners seminar last week in Austin.

At the seminar, the Commissioners earned 20 hours of continuing education credit. County Commissioners are required to complete 16 hours of continuing education per year.

Topics at the seminar included county operations such as conducting public meetings, purchasing, and understanding the functions of other elected and appointed officials. The Commissioners also heard presentations on subdivision regulations, budgets, sources of revenue, property tax issues, election procedures, and personnel matters.

Commissioner Bobby Chaney explained that the conference included a breakout session according to County population. Each group was provided experienced facilitators from similar-sized counties who answered questions and provided resources for future reference.

“It was very beneficial. There are a lot of things that have to be considered in county operations,” said Commissioner Brandon Brown. “They covered procedures and laws that are especially related to the ways counties operate. They really gave us the information we need to serve the citizens of Van Zandt County.”

The CCAC program was adopted by the County Judges and Commissioners Association of Texas in 1992 to provide curriculum for a course of advanced study in county government.
