2021 SLI Registration

In-Person Events: San Antonio and Fort Worth ($435)

  • San Antonio, June 16–19, 2021
  • Fort Worth, June 23–26, 2021

In San Antonio and Fort Worth, mask-wearing, social distancing, and room capacity restrictions will help ensure a safe and healthy event for in-person attendees.

Learn more about the COVID-19 Guidelines for attendees and read the COVID-19 Safety FAQs.

For those unable to attend in-person, a virtual conference will be held live, June 24–25, with content available to watch for 30 days following the event.

A lottery system is in place to create an equitable selection process for attendees due to our limited attendance guidelines. Here is an overview of how the lottery will work:

Step 1: April 28, lottery opens

TASB opened lottery entries Wednesday, April 28, for any district wanting to attend SLI in person. Districts will have from April 28 to May 6 to “put their name in the hat” to attend either SLI location.

How early you enter your district in the lottery will not affect your chances of being selected.

Step 2: May 7, selection

The lottery was held Friday, May 7 and TASB welcomed a few special guests and introduced a new Event Sponsor, E3, who surprised us with a district scholarship announcement. 

View the complete list of districts selected in the lottery by visiting the TASB Member Center.

Step 3: Districts contacted

Districts selected to attend in person (via the lottery) received an email from the TASB registrar on Monday, May 10, with everything you need, including the session descriptors, selection sheets, registration, and housing links.

It is imperative that each attendee fills out their own session selection sheet. The form is a pdf with fields that can easily be completed electronically. Registration cannot be completed without selecting sessions. 

We know that you may still have additional questions. Please review our SLI FAQ to get more detailed information about the process.

Anyone who registers for the in-person event also has access to the virtual content for 30 days after the conclusion of SLI Fort Worth.

Virtual watch parties ($435)

  • June 24–25, 2021

For our members who cannot attend in person but want to make connections with other board members in their region, TASB is arranging for local watch parties. These will occur at specific conference centers across the state; see Party Hosts list below (we will add more as they are confirmed).

Attendees will watch SLI virtually, together! TASB is working to provide breakfast and lunch for Thursday and Friday.

Registration opens May 17

Registration for virtual SLI, including selecting a Watch Party to attend, will open on May 17 and close on June 10 or until we reach capacity at each location.

The Post Legislative Conference takes place on Saturday, June 26, and will be an additional $160. Post Leg will not be viewed as part of a Watch Party. Those who register for Post Leg will be emailed a separate link to watch Post Leg on their own - it will be viewed live only and not available On Demand.
