TSHL Executive Committee Meeting

The next meeting of the TSHL Executive Committee is scheduled for October 11, 2018, to be held in Waco, Tx, at the Heart of Texas Council of Governments Training Room, 1514 South New Road, from 1:30 PM to 4:30 PM.

There are many important items to be discussed at this meeting including some items that the Honorable Al Campbell, Emeritus, wishes to bring to the Executive Committee. Also there will be a report from Wayne Merrill, Chair of the Finance Committee, regarding the Budget for the next biennium along with planning information for the Orientation Session in July, 2019.

An update on the Gala will be presented. It is scheduled for February 11, 2019, and is to be held in a new location: the Bullock Texas State History Museum. A reception will be held from 5:30 PM to 6:20 PM and the dinner will begin at 6:30 PM. The Hampton Inn, 1701 Lavaca St. Austin, TX 78701, is the hotel that is blocking rooms for us; however, the price is not yet available, but will be posted as soon as received.

Due to the resignation of Secretary Mary Collins, an election will be held to fill this position until the state-level election of officers at the Orientation Session in July.

Remember all TSHL members are welcome to attend these Executive Committee meetings and it is a good way to keep up with progress on resolutions and work involving interim charges to the Texas Legislature.
