Fall 2016 Calendar Released

With the completion of the Fall 2016 TACRAO Calendar, travel season is just around the corner.  I would like to remind everyone that TACRAO members will receive the fall 2016 calendar once dues have been paid.  The dues invoice is available online.  Non-members may purchase the calendar by submitting the calendar order form along with payment.

2016 Summer Admissions Workshop Registration Open

Registration is now open for the 2016 TACRAO Summer Admissions Workshop.  Go to to register.

This year’s summer workshop will be held July 29th in Nashville, TN at Montgomery Bell Academy (4001 Harding Pike, Nashville TN 37205). Instructions for how to RSVP and pay are in the attached document. Check-In begins at 8:00am CST and the Welcome/Introduction will begin at 8:30am CST. We added an extra session to the schedule, so this year’s Summer Workshop is scheduled to run until 2:30 (but we will try to get everyone out a little early to make it back home!)

As mentioned in the “Save the Date” email that went out a couple of weeks ago, we are also going to have a networking event the night before (July 28th) at the Nashville Sounds baseball game. The event is optional and not included in the registration fee, but we do encourage any attendees who will be in Nashville to attend. We will be purchasing General Admission tickets which are around $10 each, and TACRAO is inviting area high school counselors to attend the game as well. This will be a great opportunity to network with not only each other but also school counselors in the area! If you are interested in attending the baseball game email Sammy Stevens at,  and I’ll send you information on how to purchase your ticket.

If you need hotel recommendations or have trouble finding an area hotel within budget, email Lori Corley (the Summer Workshop Chair) and she will help you find accommodations! Her email address is

Any other questions can be directed to Sammy Stevens at . We hope you will join us in July for this year’s summer workshop!
