TACAC Conference Countdown


The Countdown Begins for “TACAC-stock: Peace, Love and Admissions!”

 TACAC’s 2018 Annual Conference “TACAC-stock: Peace, Love and Admissions!” is right around the corner and we can’t wait for you to join us in Galveston, TX. As the conference theme suggest, this year is all positivity, pride, youthful exuberance, celebration, acceptance and hope. The Conference Planning Committee has continued to work hard making sure you have many educational opportunities to learn about our field, and we also wanted to give you the platform to voice your own opinions about the interworking’s of our ever-growing profession. The session topics range in areas of admissions including career and staff development, student issues, national issues/external influences and technological advances. Take a look at the conference schedule to start planning which sessions you’d like to attend now!

 If you have yet to do so, please take a moment to download the Texas ACAC app and join the "2018 Annual Conference" event. We hope the app will be an enjoyable and easy tool to help you plan your time with us during the conference. It will include all of the general conference information from session descriptions to maps of Moody Gardens Resort and the Galveston area. Like previous years, the app also has a social wall. . . so create a profile, and socialize! Take advantage of these upcoming few days to get to know colleagues who are not a part of your office, and learn from each other’s experiences. Below are some common hashtags to use for your social posts throughout the conference to keep us all in the loop:

  • #TACACstock2018
  • #TACACConference2018
  • #PeaceLoveAdmissions
  • #TACAConthego

Remember to follow TACAC on social media, as we hope to share some of the best posts during the conference (with permission of course)!

 As we get closer and closer to the conference, continue to check the website and app for news and possible updates. For now, here are a few reminders from our wonderful Conference Planning Committee:
