Save the dates for our 2021 Virtual Annual Meeting scheduled for November 16 – 19, 2021.
With the number of COVID cases rising, especially “break-through” cases to vaccinated individuals, TTARA has made the decision to switch from an in-person annual meeting to a virtual one. While we all will miss the social interaction of an in-person event with friends and colleagues, protecting the safety of our members and guests must take priority.
This will NOT be an extended Zoom meeting. We are pleased to announce that we will again offer a professionally-managed event platform. It will not only allow access to the meeting sessions, it will allow private conversations and meetings between attendees or groups of attendees, as well as connections to our sponsors.
In order to provide the best possible experience, TTARA’s annual meeting will be held in four 2-hour blocks over Tuesday, November 16 through Friday, November 19. Blocks will run from 10 a.m. to noon each of those days so that the remainder of your day is free. Sessions will be available on our meeting platform not only at their scheduled time, but also on demand afterwards. If you miss a session you wanted to attend, you may watch it later at your convenience.
With the legislature’s work currently in a fluid state, portions of our program are still being set. However, we are pleased to confirm our annual Comptroller panel, hosted by Chief Deputy Lisa Craven, the economic outlook by Dr. Keith Phillips of the Dallas Federal Reserve Bank, Pat Reynolds from COST offering an overview of legislative, administrative, and judicial state and local tax events across the nation, as well as our political panel with Ross Ramsey from the Texas Tribune. We will also honor the recipient of the 2021 Distinguished Tax Professional, or Del Threadgill Award.
Our registration portal will open soon, and you will receive an email notification once it’s ready to go. Registration for the four sessions will be a greatly discounted $99.
We look forward to seeing you, even if just on a computer screen, and are hopeful that we can resume in-person, in-door meetings after the first of the year.
