- SLC 2017 DATES CHANGED!!!
The NEW GA TSA State Leadership Conference Dates for 2017 are: March 9-11, 2017.
I was directed by the board to make every effort to move the 2017 (next year's) State Leadership Conference due to our ITEEA Professional Association Annual Conference falling on the same exact days.
Our state is hosting the 2018 Conference in Atlanta and many of our teachers and advisors have important duties this year. They are expected to shadow the 2017 Host Team to learn what they will be doing in ATL as well as promoting the Atlanta Conference in Dallas.
I contacted FCCLA's Executive Director and made the request to swap weekends with them. They had the same days, a week earlier. Their board graciously voted to accept the swap.
This has JUST happened, so along with the Classic Center arrangements, this also affects our hotel blocks.. I will be signing new hotel contracts this Friday. SO those of you with reservations, already will need to change the dates of your stay, moving them to the week earlier. I will announce when the new block agreements have been signed. I will attempt to see if they can just move the existing TSA CHapter reservations to that week, but, it may require you to contact your hotel and make those changes AFTER I have completed the revised contracts. (Because they will not have any blocks for us yet on the new dates.

Army will be bringing their semi truck, interactive education center for our members to explore during the conference. It will be located under the pavillion. In addition, AT&T is joined by Valdosta State University as Silver Level Conference Sponsors. GA TSA deeply appreciates the generosity of our conference sponsors in providing resources that help provide the State Leadership Conference and keep the costs to our participants in check.
