TXConnect Membership Summit Shifts to a One Day Virtual Conference

New Format with Great Content for Members and Non-Members

After careful consideration, the Texas Telephone Association Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to pivot our inaugural TXConnect Membership Summit to a one-day virtual conference. This conference will be paired with new, ongoing monthly TXConnect Virtual Events providing continued education to registered attendees. 

The TXConnect Virtual Membership Summit will take place on Tuesday, August 18, starting at 8:15 AM. Our agenda will consist of a keynote address by Pro Football Hall of Fame member Randy White of the Dallas Cowboys, followed by an interactive discussion of new virtual mapping initiatives TTA is designing.  After a brief break for lunch, we will then have a general membership meeting, which will include the presentation of our annual awards, Legislative and Regulatory discussions, and interaction on a variety of topics.

Our Silent Auction will be moved to a virtual platform as well, so we can continue supporting the Texas Telephone Association Foundation and our scholarship recipients. All other on-site events will unfortunately not be taking place.

Please note you are welcome to keep your hotel reservation and enjoy a getaway to one of Texas’s best resorts, but not in conjunction with TTA activities.

In these interesting times our industry has learned how to be flexible and to respond to the needs of the communities we serve. That is what TTA is doing now.

Looking Ahead

Going forward, many of the topics previously on our TXConnect Membership Summit agenda will be included in our monthly TXConnect Virtual Events.  Every month we will bring you informative sessions with updates on current events in Texas as well as vendor forums and educational resources.

Your paid registration fee will allow you access to all content provided on August 18, and also any and all content provided under the TXConnect Virtual Events platform for the following year.

TXConnect invites TTA members and non-members to become more involved in the fresh new direction of the association, activities and long-term goals. This summit represents a renewed focus on connecting rural Texas through a proactive partnership with you, the industry and the future of the telecommunications industry.

Information Regarding Registration Fee to TXConnect Membership Summit

As we have made the decision to pivot our annual TXConnect Membership Summit to a one-day virtual conference (on August 18) followed by monthly content, your registration fee will be reduced to the new lower registration fee.

Refunding the Difference

The registration fee for this virtual conference will be $450 for members and $550 for non-members. We will refund you the difference between what you paid for the live event and the lower cost of the virtual event. Your registration fees will allow you access to all content provided on August 18, and all content provided under the TXConnect virtual platform for the following year.

If you had a spouse registered, we will refund the full registration amount automatically. Please allow at least 2 billing cycles for the refund to appear on your credit card. Refunds will also be issued for other activities that have unfortunately been cancelled.
