2017 TASC High School Annual Conference
April 9-11, 2017 | Arlington Convention Center & Sheraton Hotel
Join 5,000 StuCo leaders in Arlington as we come together to celebrate accomplishments, elect officers, and attend sessions on leadership and student council issues. The conference includes a catered meal and a night at Six Flags Theme Park as well as many exciting speakers and activities.
Key note speakers include Bob Upgren and Keith Hawkins. Enjoy the large group breakout with M3 Rock n' Talk. Every minute of the conference will be packed with activities, exhibits, assemblies, and workshops to encourage attendees to not only dream but to also make those dreams happen. There are sessions for both advisors and students. Register now to ensure your school will be there.
Cedar Creek High School is working with TASC District 18 to ensure this 81st TASC Annual Conference is the best ever. They are ready. Are you? Hey, were you in Arlington last year? Maybe you are in their video!
