In just a few days, we’ll be in another new year. And come what may, we’re determined to make it stellar.options to choose what emails you want to get from us, we’re continuing the website improvements we started this time last year (check out some of the latest updates here and here), and we’ve started the Texas Literacy Network for you to have direct access to the wisdom of your peers (and a place just to chit chat!).We’ve been working to get more organized than ever here at Literacy Texas. We’ve given you
Our symposium calendar is almost complete for 2022 and we’re talking about what additional options we can add as online training sessions (want to have your say? go here for an ultra-fast poll!) And then there’s our annual conference! We’re going back to the original 2-day conference format in 2022, and offering the Leadership Training at another time, as we used to do (currently scheduled for April 21). And just this past week we confirmed the conference location! We’ll be seeing you on August 1 & 2 in College Station, at the Hilton Hotel & Conference Center, and we could not be more excited about this new location. That’s just part of what we have planned for you in 2022, and there’s a ton of other literacy training, conferences, and other events already planned for 2022 – see below. As always, we want to hear any ideas you have, so get in touch at any time and share your thoughts or ask a question. We’re here to help make life easier for you, and we can do that best when you tell us how. Above all, at the end of another year together, we’re thankful. That we’re all here, and all moving forward, and that we’ve never lost sight of our main goal: To transform Texas through literacy. THANK YOU for all you do! We wish you a wonderful holiday season and a happy New Year.
