September 19 and 20, 2021

Embassy Suites and Conference Center, San Marcos, TX

Separate strands are offered for National Honor Society
& Texas Association of Student Councils

Anyone who works with student activities will benefit from this workshop!


First, we take care of the advisors.
Then we prepare advisors to take care of the students.
Because doing the same thing we did before,
will not bring us the same success this year!

  • While we are all thrilled to be back in school face to face, it's almost like being a new teacher. Dare to Lead training is designed for anyone who wants to learn how to enhance skills and become a braver, more daring leader. Let's begin with that.
  • You will get to choose breakouts and table shares based on exactly what you need (as new or experienced advisors) and end our workshop with Scott Backovich who will give you a plan for beginning a new year in the best way possible.
  • Then spend time with Houston Kraft and John Norlin (CharacterStrong) in some connection activities that will have us laughing and prepared for reconnecting in schools.
  • Terri Johnson, the absolute best on resources, ideas, and joyful leadership joins us from the Missouri Association of Student Councils to provide that “boots on the ground” expertise you need.
  • Learn from TASC partners like Work2BeWell, Dude. Be Nice, and Rachel’s Challenge as we work on our Roadmap to Wellness.

How about going to an event just for you? Join activity advisors from across the state for this weekend of learning, networking, and motivation. Experienced advisors share ideas and insights in small discussion groups and table talks. Advisors may submit a proposal to present a session or a table share.

 You will walk away with: 

  • concrete plans and practical ideas 
  • a wealth of support that will sustain you for the year
  • inspiration to take your group to the next level 
  • partners and friends for your journey of leadership

Enjoy exceptional presentations that give you materials and information you can use immediately:

  • Lizzy Perez, a Brene Brown certified Dare to Lead facilitator provides an experience and boost you need to move from armored leadership to daring leadership.
  • Groups that offer outstanding volunteer opportunities
  • Strands for new student council advisors as well as those who are experienced
  • Strands for those at both the middle and high school level
  • Honor Society Strand: Join Amy-June Remy, a MA honor society advisor as she shares the nuts and bolts of a strong honor society program. 
  • Gain sound expertise from Texas experts on student leadership and leadership classes as well as school culture and climate.

Attend as a school leadership team:  Invite your principal as well as other class and club advisors — take your leadership team! Honor Society members can create a profile and register online. Plan together for an outstanding year at your school.
