The 46th Annual Training Conference in Abilene (November 8-11, 2020).

Conference registration cost will be the same as last year with no increase to our members!


This is the only conference in the state where every class, event, and award is specifically chosen due to the benefit it provides to our members. If you want the best training that will provide you with tools to better perform your daily duties, this is the conference you should attend! We look forward to seeing everyone in Abilene on November 8-11!

We keep our costs very low so that our members can afford to attend our conference.  Costs are below:
Early Bird Registration (Before October 23, 2020 is $175.00 for Members and $225.00 for Non-Members (Includes Membership).
Standard Registration after October 23, 2020, registration is $200.00 for Members and $250.00 for Non-Members (Includes Membership).

Registration fees may be paid by credit card online or by check once registration opens.

We have negotiated a $99.00 per night room rate (Single/Double, $109.00 for Triple/Quadruple) with the MCM Elegante Hotel in Abilene.  Each room is a suite, and includes free full breakfast and a Manager's Reception each evening.

Please look for registration to open around early Fall.  We will send an announcement out to all members once registration is opened.

Your Board of Directors is working hard this year to provide you with a top-quality conference at an affordable price!  Please keep us in mind when you plan your 2020 training needs.

TACA is no longer the entity that approves classes for credit hours. If you have a class to submit for credit hour approval, it must be submitted through the Department of State Health Services (DSHS) in Austin prior to the date of the class. DSHS approval may take up to eight (8) weeks. Any questions about whether or not a proposed class is state-approved should be directed to DSHS. To avoid confusion, TACA is only able to post state-approved classes on this website. Proof of state approval is required. TACA obtains state-approval for all of its conferences. Members may be assured that they will receive the appropriate credit hours for any TACA conferences or classes that they attend.8
