Conference registration information

Online registration opens on Wednesday, April 24 and closes Friday, May 24 and can be found through the new Event Calendar

Below are tips to ensure a smooth registration experience:

  1. The User MUST have an active myTASB user ID and password to register—whether you are registering yourself or others.
  2. Registrants DO NOT need an active myTASB user ID and password if someone else in the district is registering them.
  3. District personnel with access to the Member Profile application in myTASB can add and update member information using that application. 

If you need assistance with your myTASB account or the Member Profile application, contact the registrars at registrar@tasb.org or 800.580.8272, ext. 2453 or 2454.

Registration proceduresFort Worth Buildings

Before you register online:

  1. View the complete list of San Antonio Session Descriptors (coming 4/22/19)
  2. Determine which sessions you want to attend in San Antonio
  3. Check off and rank the sessions you want to attend on the Session Selection Form (coming 4/22/19)
  4. Return the form to your superintendent or designee so that they may complete your registration

To help navigate the many sessions at SLI, we have created tip sheets highlighting sessions in several categories. Pick the title that best fits what you want to get out of this conference and use the selections as a guide when registering for SLI.

These guides will be available on Monday, April 22, 2019.

  • Newly elected Trustees FW Guide
  • Trustees who have served for 1-3 years FW Guide
  • Board Officers (especially new officers) FW Guide
  • Sessions with a focus on Equity: Reaching and Serving All Students FW Guide
  • Sessions with a focus on Community Engagement: Building and Maintaining Two-Way Communication FW Guide
  • Sessions with a focus on Leadership: Personal Development for School Trustees FW Guide
  • Sessions with a focus on School Safety FW Guide
  • Sessions with a focus on Student Success: Defining and Fostering Meaningful  Outcomes for Students FW Guide

To speed up the process and to ensure accuracy, registration takes place through a new event registration system which automatically pulls individual and district information from the TASB membership database. If you need assistance with your myTASB account or the Member Profile application, contact the registrars at registrar@tasb.org or 800.580.8272, ext. 2453 or 2454.

Holding May elections?

If your district is having contested elections this May, you need to wait until after the May 5 election to register your new board members for SLI. TASB’s new registration system requires that all registrants have an active record in the TASB Member directory. You can add or update member information using the Member Profile application within myTASB before registration. We know it is important for your new board members to receive training immediately following their election. Rest assured that we will monitor TASB ISD session registrations so that every newly elected board member will be able to take this course at SLI.
