Due to limitations of the Waco Convention Center and the desire to maintain the health and safety of our members, our association will not be hosting an in-person event this year.

This means that the Agriculture Teachers Association of Texas Professional Development Conference will move to an online format for 2020.

Our association is excited to take on the challenge of our first online professional development conference and believe it will still be a great event to enhance teaching methods, keep up with developments in curriculum, learn more about industry-based student certifications, and celebrate the success and achievements of our members.

About Our Conference      

The Agriculture Teachers Association of Texas Professional Development Conference for teachers of Agriculture, Food, and Natural Resources provides a week-long conference specifically for agriculture teachers and stakeholders. The event is designed to enhance teaching methods, keep up with developments in curriculum, learn more about industry-based student certifications, and network with leaders in our profession.

Through a partnership with the Texas Education Agency, Agriculture Teachers Association is able to grant Continuing Professional Education (CPE) hours to participants in this conference.
