The 2021 Annual Report recently published

By Rob Kepple
TDCAF & TDCAA Executive Director in Austin

Many of you have received a paper copy of the Foundation’s 2021 Annual Report, a booklet we produce and mail out every year about this time to recap the previous year’s goings-on in the Foundation. It includes updates on training, victim services, and publications, and it highlights those individuals and corporations that have contributed to the Foundation’s growth and well-being. It also showcases photos from our conferences and receptions, as well as a list of the Texas Prosecutors Society, both new inductees and longtime members. It’s chock-full of Foundation information! If you didn’t receive one in the mail, you can read the Annual Report below.

2022 Foundation Board

The TDCAA board of directors has appointed the Foundation Board for 2022 (listed in the box below). It is a great group, led this year by Ken Magidson, former DA in Harris County and one-time United States Attorney for the Southern District of Texas. I would like to give a special welcome to Joe Bailey, our newest board member. Joe is a former Harris County ADA and law partner to the legendary Mike “Machine Gun” Hinton, who served on the Foundation Board until his passing in 2020. Thanks, Joe, for joining this great group!
