We work hard to ensure that our organization members have the latest, up-to-date information regarding educator preparation.  Part of how we do this is through promoting conference attendance.  A well informed community of educator preparation programs is an empowered one, so take a look at the conference offerings this year specifically for you and your program.  Help spread the word about all the amazing opportunities to network with TACA and other educator preparation program across the state and nation.
