Message from the President about TCCIL 2017

October 22, 2019

Hello TACTE members!
The TCCIL conference in the past has been sponsored by three State organizations:  TACTE, TACE, and TCCIA.  Each organization was fiscally responsible and helped in the planning stages.  The past three years have been difficult to provide this conference as the three organizations have lost money on each TCCIL conference.  It was determined by the three association presidents in Spring 2017 that TCCIL was not a feasible conference to hold anymore.  TACTE would then be the only organization that would be fiscally responsible for a Fall conference.  With that being said, the TACTE Board met in June at their summer board meeting and has determined that the Fall 2017 Conference will be cancelled due to time restrictions in planning a viable conference. The Board will continue to discuss and plan the Fall 2018 conference.
But GOOD NEWS awaits!!!  Since we will not have a Fall 2017 conference, the TACTE Spring 2018 conference will have great speakers, topics that are relevant and timely, a multitude of vendors, and much more.  The Spring conference is set for April 11-13, 2018 at Omni Southpark in Austin.  Registration will open in January 2018.   
Please be sure to update your membership starting Sept. 1, 2017.  We have made changes to our website and in order for you to receive valuable information regarding CTE and to utilize the forum, you will need to be a member of TACTE.  

I look forward to seeing all of you in April 2018 for the TACTE conference!!  Thank you for your continued support from around the State!
Thank you.
Shana Drury, President
