ANNUAL CONFERENCE and TEXAS ASSEMBLY 2021

 
 

October 23rd and October 30th, 2021
 
 

Annual Conference and Texas Assembly are Going Virtual!! We have listened to our membership and the majority prefer a virtual conference for this year due to health and safety, and time and cost, concerns. A virtual conference gives us the opportunity to present more classes and allows members to obtain more CCUs at a much lower cost. No travel, no hotel rooms and you can attend the classes on your own schedule. Last year’s Virtual Annual Conference was a success, but we learned many lessons and this year’s will be even better. The Board and Staff of TPTA are looking forward to providing you with the best learning opportunities possible.
