Does TASA/TASB share attendee e-mail addresses?
No. TASA/TASB will never share attendee e-mail addresses.
I was contacted by a housing company other than Convention Housing Management (CHM). What should I do?
Please let us know.
When we secure sleeping rooms at hotels for our conferences (commonly referred to as room blocks), we research the properties to make certain our attendees will be adequately accommodated. The room block is established to ensure that rooms meet our standards and are offered at a discounted price:
- Registrants are often contacted by fax, e-mail, or most often by phone with offers for cut-rate housing.
- The intent is to convince you that the offer is made on our behalf, or that the soliciting company is a viable alternative to going through our service provider. This is not true.
- TASA/TASB Convention housing is handled exclusively by Convention Housing Management (CHM).
May I bring a guest or spouse?
Yes. We offer one complimentary guest badge with each paid convention registration. Please see Registration for more information.
Whom should I contact about special needs?
If you would like to rent a power scooter or wheelchair for delivery to the Austin Convention Center or area hotels, or if you would like us to address another special need, let us know by September 21, 2018. E-mail Ronika Nash or call 512.505.2451.
Does TASA/TASB endorse certain speakers, companies, or services?
No. TASA/TASB endorses no speaker, exhibitor, sponsor, attendee, or other participant in Convention by virtue of their participation.
What is the policy on marketing at Convention?
Attendees are not permitted to distribute materials or otherwise market themselves or their business in contracted Convention space unless such attendees are registered as exhibitors and limit their marketing activities to within the confines of their booth.
What is the policy on video and photography at Convention?
No taping or recording is allowed other than by TASA/TASB staff and its designees.

By attending the TASA/TASB Convention, attendees, exhibitors, and sponsors give TASA/TASB permission to use attendee’s voice and image in any such archival or promotional recording, photograph, or streaming activity.
