Q: How would you keep the District Clerk’s office up to date with the ever-changing technology and legislation?
When you work in the legal field, there is a constant need to keep on top of the ever-changing state and federal laws. The only way to do this is with continuing education and training. I believe it is the district clerk's responsibility to keep on top of this and to make sure her staff is well educated and trained.
Education, education, education is the key. Mrs. Barnette advised me to get all the education that I can. I have found that to be the best advice I have ever received. It is because of that education that I am able to come back to my office and train my staff so they can do the best job possible. Being active in the Texas Association of County and District Clerks’ Association and serving on their legislative committee has given me great insight into what to expect in the future in the legal field and the field of technology.
