April 8-10, 2020 (cancelled)
April 14-16, 2021
Dear Chapter Advisors and Members
The safety and welfare of the OKTSA community (members, advisors, alumni, parents, and volunteers) is our highest priority. In response to the ongoing health crisis related to the coronavirus pandemic, the OKTSA Advisory Committee has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 TSA State Conference. This decision was made based on information and guidance updated daily by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO). Additionally, because many school districts across the state have suspended student and teacher travel for the coming months, the conference could not have statewide representation.
Although this isn’t what any of us would prefer, or certainly not what we had hoped for, the current situation requires OKTSA to follow all directives with fidelity.
Thank you for your understanding and continued support during this unprecedented time.
TSA State Advisor
