TBA VIRTUAL CONVENTION JULY 20 – 22
SPECIAL BONUS THIS YEAR-ALL ATTENDEES WILL HAVE ACCESS TO THE ACADEMY ON SUNDAY, JULY 19 (See below for Academy details)
The 2020 Virtual Convention will include over 40 clinics for high school, middle school and beginner teaching; nationally known guest artists and composers; the latest information from our state associations; and even live performances and some much-needed inspiration. Many of the clinics will address the latest information and strategies for dealing with COVID-19 challenges as we return to school this fall. In this virtual format we are still able to offer the Student Leadership Day (Saturday, July 18), Academy for New Directors (Sunday, July 19) and Booster Club Training (Saturday, July 25). Attendees can earn Texas professional development credit. Texas TBA members go to the MEMBER PORTAL and print the CPE form after the convention is completed on July 22. All of the sessions are being recorded and you will have access to them after the convention.
