TAAP State Conference

Register Here 2020 State TAAP Conference
TAAP Conferences are a great way to Network, Learn, Present, Exhibit, and Collaborate.

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 re-licensure. 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 TAAP annual conferences will include keynote speakers, daily plenary sessions, breakout workshops, TAAP Political Action Committee meetings,  and most conferences will feature an all-day, pre-conference seminar. The conferences also feature Award Luncheons honoring outstanding addiction-focused professionals from around the state. There are also optional evening events, to allow you more time to network with some of the brightest professionals in the industry. There is always time to enjoy your visit to each location, taking in the sights, historical, and cultural heritage.
