TEX-ABOTA is hosting a “Boot Camp” on Thursday, April 25, 2019 in Austin. It is intended for chapter leaders and new members of ABOTA chapters in Texas.

Register as a “TEX-ABOTA member”. This will circumvent registration for the National Board Meeting and options for the bootcamp will show for you to register.

The morning program is to introduce those who’ve not been involved in leadership in TEX-ABOTA to more of the concepts, what we really do, how the programs work and how to put programs on at the chapter level. Attention is being focused on members of 10 years or less, but anyone may attend. We want to get people in TEX-ABOTA engaged in ABOTA, learn what we do on the regional level, what they can do on the chapter level, and what’s going on nationally.

There will be a morning session from 9:00am-1:00pm at Jackson Walker. Speakers will be ABOTA members from all over Texas. Click here for a PDF of the agenda.

We will leave Jackson Walker via bus at 1:00pm for lunch at Scholtz Beer Garten.  We’ll then attend a private music performance and have a brief tour of some of the significant historical sites related to Texas music in Austin. This is a unique opportunity to dig deep into the musical roots of our great state. Companions are invited to attend. There is no charge for TEX-ABOTA members and companions, but we need to know if you’re going to participate in the lunch.
