COLLEGE VISITS

There are many institutions that surround our Lost Pines' Central Texas location. We will work with area colleges/universities to provide tours for our members.

Sign ups will begin in early Spring 2020.

COLLEGE FAIR/COUNSELOR CARD SWAP

Join us during conference for the Counselor Card Swap from 1:15 – 2:15 p.m. on Monday. Similar to a college fair, admission representatives will set up tables while high school counselors have an opportunity to meet and interact with them to obtain contact information. You do not want to miss this networking opportunity to build your contact list. Unlike a traditional college fair, the idea is not to bring or take-home lots of materials, but to exchange business cards only.

College representatives must register and pay for the Counselor Card Swap at the time of conference registration. Only one registration per institution is needed. 

WELLNESS ACTIVITIES

The beautiful setting of Lost Pines provides the perfect background for relaxation and wellness. Our Wellness committee will provide you with the opportunity to participate in activities.

Stay tuned for details.

CONFERENCE SOCIAL

Held Monday night, be ready to enjoy the company of your fellow attendees. 

Conference Social is included in full registration.  Participants in Local Educators Day can purchase tickets to the social at time of registration.

TACAC COMMITTEE WORK DAY 

Join the Executive Board on Tuesday, March 31, 2020 at 8:00 AM for breakfast and to learn more about the work of each standing TACAC committee. Identify your interests and contribute your experience as you work hand in hand with the committee chairs to plan for the upcoming TACAC year.
