 2020 TAAP State Conference Update

Due to ongoing concerns of COVID-19 and for the health and welfare of our conference attendees, exhibitors, and sponsors, TAAP’s Board of Directors voted to transition from a live conference to a virtual event. We have a committee currently working to get all the details settled but we know many have begun to wonder, understandably, so we wanted to get this word out.

The virtual event will be held during the original conference dates, September 10 and 11, with the 12th as a possibility. We intend to bring you high quality and currently relevant topics, with an option to obtain additional continuing ed hours required by LCDCs for relicensure. A Town Hall meeting will be part of the virtual schedule to announce scholarship awardees and annual TAAP award winners, share state and national updates, and announce your new Board of Directors and Texas Certification Board members. We are planning a great event!

We look forward to sharing details with you as soon as we have them determined! Look for emails to come soon.

If you have registered for the conference already, we will be in touch regarding refund options as soon as we have the process worked out. Full refunds will be available if you cancel your registration completely. Please allow us a little time to accomplish all that has to be done. For those who have committed as sponsors and exhibitors, we will be in touch with each of you to discuss options. 

The Hyatt Hill Country resort and its wonderful amenities has been a popular plus for our conference. The hotel will honor the conference room rate, $164/night, for the original conference room block dates, Wed Sept 9th – Sunday Sept 13th. If you would like to enjoy time at the hotel with your family or friends you can still do that but will need to make a reservation using this link - If you already have a reservation at the hotel you will receive a cancellation notice from Hyatt. If you’d like to take advantage of the rate for our dates, you will need to make a new reservation with the link. A previous reservation is not required to take advantage of these rates. 

We look forward to seeing you virtually in September!
