Top 10 reasons to attend TAA’s June conference
There are a lot of great reasons to attend TAA’s 32nd Annual Textbook & Academic Authoring Conference. Past attendees consistently give TAA conferences high marks for content, networking, and inspiration:
“What a great conference! I came away inspired to write many more articles, book chapters and books. The conference gave the tools to accomplish that. It was a great friendly mix of authors at all stages of writing willing to share, mentor and interact.” ~ Betsy Stringam, Professor, New Mexico State University
“TAA’s Conference consistently provides me with actionable advice, access to helpful guidance by legal, accounting, and media professionals, and invaluable networking opportunities. It’s my annual ‘retreat’ to share experiences with others who work in the rather solitary profession of textbook authoring.” ~ Kevin Patton, A&P Textbook Author
“I love attending this conference year after year! It’s fun, inspiring and educational! I always leave motivated to start writing, researching or both!” ~ Pat Maruca, Asst. Dean, Point Loma Nazarene University
“The ideas and strategies discussed at TAA’s conference related to effective writing, time management, and meaningful productivity were immensely helpful and have changed my approach to academic and professional responsibilities.” ~ Max Walling, Assoc. Director, Sam Houston State University
