Winter Governance and Legal Seminar
2018 Conference Registration

Preregistration has closed. Please complete this onsite registration form and bring it with you to the Galveston Convention Center.

TASB has rolled out a new Event Calendar and registration system. Online registration for the TASB Winter Governance and Legal Seminar 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 or 800.580.8272, ext. 2453 or 2454.

Access the complete list of Session Descriptors to determine which sessions you will submit with your registration. After reviewing the session offerings, complete the Session Selection Form and return it to your superintendent or designee so that he or she may complete your registration. 

Registrations cannot be processed without the Session Selection Form.
