The Fund welcomed approximately 500 attendees to the 2016 Members’ Conference at the Hyatt Regency Austin April 24-26. The event was filled with many opportunities to learn, connect, and succeed – the theme for this year’s Members’ Conference.
The conference featured 16 sessions on a variety of hot topics and three general sessions.
Attendees were able to jump start their day with a 60-minute yoga class or get their steps in with an early morning walk along Lady Bird Lake. Another new offering was Learning Talk Over Coffee, where members from school districts and community colleges collaborated about issues impacting their organization.
The Fund recognized the 2016 Innovation Award recipients during the Annual Members’ Luncheon and Innovation Award Ceremony. They were presented with a commemorative plaque and honorarium to apply toward their risk management programs.
At the end of the conference, members were selected for $1,000, $3,000, and $5,000 in the coverage credit drawing. This year’s winners were Francene Lindsey, Angleton ISD; Sharon McHenry, Clear Creek ISD; and Teena Bule, Christoval ISD.
