TISCA Coaches Clinic 2021
The TISCA Clinic Will be back in-person for 2021
After a virtual clinic last year we're looking forward to seeing everyone in person again. The date is set for September 16-19 in Austin. Hotel info coming soon.
As with everything the last couple of years, the clinic has faced some challenges and is getting a little bit of a late start this year. FEMA has been renting out the Doubletree North, where we usually have the clinic, for office space during the Covid pandemic. They decided to extended their stay to October which put us out of a host hotel for this year. Fortunately, we found a couple of good options to be a temporary host for this year that we'll be finalizing soon. As soon as that is complete we'll have a hotel reservations link as well as registration info.
If you have any input on what you would like to see or if you would like to host a talk/roundtable, you can email me at [email protected].
We’ve very excited to have the date/location set for the 2021 TISCA clinic. After a virtual clinic last year we’ll all get to see each other in person again on September 16-19 at the Hilton Airport Austin.
