About Delegate Assembly

The fight for Texas public schools isn't done

Texas schools are facing long-term legislative challenges, and it is more important than ever for Texas trustees to stand up and advocate for our schools. Your role as an advocate starts at the TASB Delegate Assembly.

50 years of school advocacy

This year marks a special anniversary for Delegate Assembly. Fifty years ago, school board members gathered for the first Assembly—an opportunity to have a direct and equal voice in the determination of TASB policies and programs. Since then, the Assembly has evolved.

This is the place where you and your fellow trustees lay the groundwork for how we tackle the tough advocacy issues for our schools.

  • Hear a report on the legislative session from keynote speaker Evan Smith, CEO and cofounder of The Texas Tribune.
  • Earn advocacy training credit for attending.
  • Be ready to take on our legislative challenges—to take action and be the advocate your district and your students need.

Be the voice for Texas public schools

Plan to be an active voice at the 2017 Delegate Assembly scheduled for October 7 in Dallas. Select a delegate and alternate to serve as your board’s voice in Delegate Assembly. Choose from among the more experienced members of your board—those who are well versed in the needs of your district.

Each local board may appoint one delegate and one alternate. Delegate registration is available in myTASB under the Member Profile link, or use the delegate selection form to submit your delegate’s registration. Preregister your representatives by September 8 to receive Assembly materials by mail. After September 8, delegates will need to pick up their materials on site.

We look forward to hearing your board’s voice at the 2017 Delegate Assembly!
