Hosting a Symposium

To be responsive to what we’ve heard you need, we now ask once a year for expressions of interest in hosting symposia. We welcome interest from organizations across Texas!

We have these goals:

  1. Present high-quality symposia that meet local needs.
  2. Offer symposia in regions where they are most needed.
  3. Reach more people in Texas with quality professional development.
  4. Connect with new prospective presenting partners.

We’re looking for expressions of interest from anyone interested in presenting a regional symposium in the coming grant year (September 2024 – August 2025).

And – very importantly – we want to hear from EVERYONE who’s interested.

Never held a symposium before? We want to hear from you!
Successfully held many symposia? We want to hear from you!
There’s already a symposium in your region? We want to hear from you!
There’s never been a symposium in your region? We want to hear from you!

Everything starts with an expression of interest, and we’ll start our conversations there.

Please note –

We’re making some important changes for the 2024-25 grant year, to provide a more consistent experience across symposia for all attendees, and to make things easier both for presenting partners and for Literacy Texas as these events grow in size and scope. These improvements will affect how all regional symposia are organized.

We will be holding two information sessions, and we very much encourage anyone who would like to learn more about holding a symposium to attend one of them:

Monday, June 17, 10:00 am – 11:00 am
Tuesday, June 25, 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Expressions of Interest Process

We’ve tried to keep the process as simple and straightforward as possible. There are two main elements:

  1. Read the planning guidelines
  2. Complete the interest form

Use the buttons below to do both those things!

Both these documents will be available in June 2024 and will be linked from this page – stay tuned.

Expressions of interest for the 2023-24 grant year closed on Friday, July 14, 2023.

Stay tuned for the 2024-25 process, which will open in summer 2024.

Expressions of interest for the 2023-24 grant year will be open until Friday, July 14, 2023.
