TASB Board of Directors waive registration fees for 2011-2012 training events

A report on the April 2011 meeting of the TASB Board of Directors
Texas Association of School Boards Headquarters, Austin, Texas
As a signal of support for its members, the TASB Board of Directors unanimously approved use of the Association’s fund balance to waive registration fees to key TASB training events in the 2011–12 school year. Board members can continue to fulfill their education training requirements. More importantly, trustees and administrators can continue to learn ways to navigate through these challenging times while keeping the focus on our students.

The TASA/TASB Convention in Austin, September 30–October 2, will be the first event with no registration fees for active members. Others are the Superintendent Secretary Training Conference in October 2011 and February 2012, Large District Leadership Forum in December 2011, Fall and Winter Legal Seminars (hosted in select cities on various dates), the Winter Governance and Legal Seminar in February 2012, and the two Summer Leadership Institutes in June 2012. Additionally, paid subscribers of TASB HR Services, OnSite Services, and SMART program will be eligible for some training events at no cost, and tuition fees have been waived for the Leadership TASB class beginning September 2011.

All public school districts and education service centers are classified as active members.
