|TREA Summer Conference Update
July 2020 (exact dates TBD)
We would like to thank everyone that took the time to participate in the survey regarding conference. TREA staff and the Board of Directors utilized the results to make the most informed decision possible. During today's board meeting the Directors voted unanimously for a blended model which will be an in person conference in mid-late July in Fort Worth and offer a modified virtual option which would be available after conference. The dates will be finalized in the next week or so and will fall somewhere between July 20-30. We will communicate the details regarding the dates, and virtual options, as soon as confirmed. Thank you for your patience, input and support during this unprecedented time.
Scholarships will be awarded regardless of the Conference decision. We have over 150 completed applications to review and out of those we will award 25 scholarships.
Watch for your TREA invoice to come in June 2020. With the COVID-19 pandemic affecting all of us we hope this is a small thing TREA can do to help reduce the "to-do" list for your district.
The #TeachersCan initiative officially launched this week with the new TV spot, website, Facebook page, and Instagram account. We hope you will use your social media channels, email newsletters, website, and any other channels you deem appropriate, to announce your organization’s support of the movement, to encourage people to share the video, to share their own stories via social media using the designated hashtags indicated, to download free backgrounds and posters, and to purchase #TeachersCan swag, all available through the website.
