2017 Annual Conference Call for Breakout Session Presentations
Share |

The Planning Committee is seeking recommendations for the conference break-out sessions and we want to hear from YOU!  Come share your successes, lessons learned, and challenges at the 2017 TASSCC Annual Conference.  The Conference will be held in San Antonio at the Hyatt Regency Riverwalk Hotel, August 6-9, 2017.

This year, TASSCC is celebrating 40 years of successful networking and educational opportunities!  To honor that success, this year's conference theme is "Fabulous @ 40; #FutureIsNow." There will be four breakout session tracks. We hope you’ll considering sharing your experience and expertise to help make this year’s Breakout Sessions the best yet!   

The Session Tracks are:

  • Cybersecurity and Information Security
  • Service Delivery Initiatives
  • Compliance
  • IT Strategy and Roadmap

Within the tracks, each session will be 50 minutes: 40 minutes of prepared presentation, and 10 minutes for questions. You may present individually, or as a group.  We encourage vendors to partner with a state agency or higher education institution for presentations.
