Conference registration information

Online registration opens on Wednesday, April 29 and closes Friday, May 22 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.
    • If you need assistance with your myTASB account or the Member Profile application, contact the registrars at or 800.580.8272, ext. 3611.
  2. View the complete list of Session Descriptors (coming 4/22)
    • Session Descriptors will be published the week prior to registration opening. It is imperative that Trustees review the program and select their personal agenda.
  3. Determine which sessions you want to attend by completing the My Choices PDF (posted 4/22) and return the form to your superintendent or designee so they can complete your registration.

Registrations cannot be processed without the My Choices PDF (posted 4/22)!

For the safety and comfort of our attendees, once a session reaches capacity it will no longer be available for selection.

  • Newly Elected Trustees
  • ​First-Term Trustees (1-3 years)
  • Experienced Trustees (4+ years)
  • Board Officers (new officers, interested in becoming an officer)

Holding May elections?

If your district is having contested elections this May, you need to wait until after the May 4 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.
