Texas Association of School Boards (TASB) and Entity Board summer meeting - Houston, Texas

The Texas Association of School Boards (TASB) hosted the Summer TASB and Entity Board meeting last week in Houston, Texas - from Wednesday to Saturday, July 24-July 27, 2013.

A packed agenda called for reports and action by Boards and committees, including: the Energy Cooperative  Board,  First Public, LLC, the Legislative Action Committee, the Local Government Purchasing Cooperative, the Lone Star Investment Pool Board, Risk Management Board and committees, TASB Benefits Board, and the TASB Board and committees.

Meanwhile, TASB staff members reported they are also wrapping up final preparations for the 2013 TASA/TASB  annual state conference, set for September 27 - 29 in Dallas.  Hundreds of School Board Trustees and school administrators from all over Texas will attend.

Our appreciation to President Viola M. Garcia, along with the Executive Committee, for leading TASB Directors and affiliates in an effective, efficient summer meeting.

Thanks to TASB staff who once again facilitated this well-planned, well-organized event.

The quality of service and work provided by TASB for Texas schools and public education helps validate why, for the fifth year in a row, the Texas Association of School Boards was selected as the Fourth Best of Top Places to Work In Central Texas among large companies by the Austin Business Journal.

Executive Director Jim Crow stated, "This is a great honor, as there were 250 nominations this year.  TASB staff is dedicated to service, and we know that if we are good and caring to our staff, they will be good and caring to our members. I am extremely proud of their commitment to excellence as they work to support Texas public schools every day."

We are grateful for the services TASB provides to school districts throughout the state of Texas.
