MANY, MANY THANKS to all the conference committee members who helped with registration and door prize announcements, member services committee members who ran so many fun activities during the event, great speakers, exhibitors, sponsors and all the other folks who helped to make this conference a resounding success!  We hope everyone who attended learned a lot besides having an awesome time on The Island.  We look forward to seeing everyone again next year in Austin.

ATTENTION FAMILIES LOOKING FOR SECTION 8 VOUCHER ASSISTANCE:  Watch out for SCAMS! Reportedly, there are Internet Sites claiming to be application sites for voucher assistance.   They are taking fees and personal information from people claiming to put them on waiting lists. These are BOGUS! The only way you can apply for voucher assistance is directly through a local housing authority.  Click  here  to find the applicable housing authority Texas.
