2018 TASH Conference has ended
Each year, the TASH Conference brings together a diverse community of stakeholders who gain information, learn about resources, and connect with others across the country to strengthen the disability field. This year’s conference theme, “Be Creative - Innovative Solutions for an Inclusive Life,” reminds us to think outside the box during times of uncertainty. Creativity, innovation, and determination can pave the way for meaningful and inclusive lives for people with disabilities.

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
The Chapter Leadership and Membership Committee workshop invites representatives from all existing and budding chapters to come together to share activities that their chapters are doing, set new goals for the coming year, and record video testimonials that can be used either for the TASH national video or for individual chapter videos. Please join us for what hopes to be a productive, supportive, and fun meeting!

1:00 - Introductions
Each chapter representative will have 2-3 minutes. Each person say their name and the chapter they belong to.

1:30-1:35 - Goal Setting
Provide 2-3 examples, share them quickly and explain why they are good goals that include an action.

1:35 - 1:50 Groups (2-3)
Each person come up with one goal idea for chapter/state

1:50: 2:00 - Prepare to Record Testimonials
For the rest of the workshop we will work to make a short video that you can use to promote your chapter and that TASH can use to make a national TASH video. The videos can be posted on websites, Facebook or other social media.

We will discuss some prompts and ideas, some should be specific to chapters/states (think of goals developed above). You will also work as a group to come up with your own.

  1. What does TASH mean to you?
  2. What does each of the TASH values mean to you (Inclusion, Equity, Opportunity)
  3. What problem does the association solve for its members?
  4. A goal you are working on and how you have achieved the progress you have. Or also the challenges you face.
