County officials are directed to provide County Historical Commission (CHC) appointee updates every January of odd-numbered years according to the Texas Local Government Code, Chapter 318. The Texas Historical Commission (THC) uses this opportunity to update contact information for re-appointed individuals, in addition to adding new appointees. Counties are asked to provide names for CHC Chairs and Marker Chairs to ensure that the THC connects with the appropriate county contacts on a regular basis.
The CHC Outreach Program processes appointee updates in the order received as time allows. CHCs have been asked to submit appointee updates online in the past. However, we are switching contact databases and have found that, for now, the process is more easily managed through email and mail.
In September 2012, each county judge's office was mailed the contact information on file for their CHC, along with appointee update instructions and appointee selection criteria. Counties may email or mail the THC a new CHC appointee roster or submit a marked-up copy of the contact information provided last September.
Please provide appointee updates via email or mail using the following information.
