Greetings from the directors and staff at TASSP!
The new TASSP 2016-17 membership year has begun. If you have not joined or renewed your membership, do it today!
Being an ACTIVE member of TASSP is critical to effective campus leadership. Through TASSP, principals and assistant principals share best practices and effective solutions to common issues. The TASSP network spans from the aspiring administrator to the veteran principal. Also eligible to join as an ACTIVE member are curriculum and program directors who serve staff and students in secondary schools, grades 6-12.
ACTIVE membership provides access to MEMBER ONLY information, legislative updates, publications and newsletters, nominations for student awards program, community forums, discounts on registration, liability insurance and MORE. TASSP membership offers opportunities to network through statewide conferences, region meetings, committee work and community forums. Members have opportunities to serve through committee work, region meeting leadership, facilitation of TASSP-sponsored workshops, writing for the professional journal and more. ACTIVE members also receive liability insurance as part of the annual dues.
ASSOCIATE membership is offered to all educators, aspiring and current, and vendors who choose to join TASSP. The ASSOCIATE membership receives the same member benefits as the ACTIVE membership EXCEPT for the liability insurance. Liability insurance is NOT included in the ASSOCIATE membership.
RETIRED membership is an option for those who have retired from service. A $100 fee is assessed for a LIFETIME membership.
For all of these reasons and more, it is critical to be a current member of TASSP. We know you have a choice in choosing a professional association. We encourage you to make TASSP your first choice for membership and active engagement.
The TASSP membership year is September 1, 2016 to August 31, 2017. Current members must renew by November 30, 2016 to avoid lapse in membership benefits, including liability insurance. Membership for new members is active on the day payment is received at the TASSP office. A delay in joining will be a delay in receiving member services. If you need assistance, please contact Shannon Murdock, TASSP Membership Coordinator, at email@example.com or at 512-443-2100, Ext. 232.
We look forward to a successful new year! Renew your membership today!
