2020 TACUSPA Annual Conference
October 26-28, 2020

Greetings TACUSPA Members!

This Spring and Summer have been filled with uncertainty, and many of our plans have changed daily; however, we’re excited to share some news about our 2020 TACUSPA Annual Conference, which will be held October 26 – October 28, 2020.

Although the conference committee was excited to meet everyone in Austin to enjoy some BBQ, a stroll through South Congress, and each other’s company in person, the 2020 TACUSPA Annual Conference will be hosted virtually from the comfort of your home, office, or wherever you have Internet! To the right, you will find a schedule of the conference activities.

While the conference may look different this year, we still want to provide our members with a chance to learn from one another, connect with colleagues, and immerse ourselves with our theme, “Reimagining Representation and Diversity In Our Work,” when so much work for equity, inclusion, and diversity is needed more than ever.

We’re excited to share that registration is open, and the virtual experience will be offered at no cost to TACUSPA Members.

    Additionally, the Conference Committee seeks a diverse set of program proposals to enhance our conference attendees' knowledge of innovative techniques, research, and best practices that will reaffirm our commitment to student success. We ask that you share your knowledge and experience with your colleagues and submit a program proposal. Proposals will be accepted through September 4, 2020.

    Program Proposal Submissions are now closed.

    We hope you join us for our first-ever virtual conference!
