The TASA Midwinter Conference has become the most popular conference of the year for Texas school leaders because it provides such a valuable opportunity to come together to discuss and share innovative practices, network with peers, address the administrative issues administrators face every day, and gain fresh insights.

Accountability Forum Seminar to Follow Midwinter
The TASA Accountability Forum will meet Wednesday, January 30, in the Austin Convention Center after the TASA Midwinter Conference.

"Inspiring Leaders" to be Theme of 2019 Midwinter Conference
TASA's "Inspiring Leaders" tagline is not just a reminder of our organization's commitment to leadership development; it also describes our members themselves — school leaders who inspire others as they work to prepare future-ready students. So "Inspiring Leaders" seemed the perfect theme for the 2019 Midwinter Conference, where school leaders will come together from around the state to learn from the experts — in many cases each other — in an effort to become better leaders. Join us for the opportunity to network with colleagues, share ideas, discuss strategies, and collaborate at the premier conference for Texas school leaders.
