The Fall Conference for Faculty Leaders focuses on issues related to the role of faculty in the college decision-making process; including legal issues, the legislature, student success, and programs that relate immediately to your classroom! Designed especially for faculty leaders, this event is open to anyone interested in the leadership role faculty play in Texas two-year colleges.

Registration Form (Deadline September 23rd)

Join us at the renowned, historic Menger Hotel. Just twenty-three years after the fall of The Alamo in 1836, German businessman, William A. Menger, opened his luxury hotel. With the extraordinary Menger Bar as its centerpiece, the elaborately designed hotel soon became a favorite among Texas titans of industry, commerce, and politics. With a style and tradition befitting the oldest continuously operating hotel west of the Mississippi, the Menger Hotel offers a splendid bridge between San Antonio’s colorful border town past and its cosmopolitan present.

Call Today: (800) 345-9285

*Mention TCCTA to secure the conference room rate of $119.
