Come To Civication

Do you have plans for your Spring Break? Consider coming to the capitol to talk to your legislators and enjoy the great entertainment of Nashville!  It’s a Civication, combining vacation with civic pride in our profession.
TEA pays mileage for any members who want to come on the Tuesday of Spring Break. There is a complimentary breakfast at TEA Headquarters in downtown Nashville at 7:30 a.m., free parking, shuttle service to the Capitol at 8:30 a.m. Be sure to schedule meetings with your legislators prior to traveling to Nashville. 
In addition to meeting with your legislators, you will be able to witness the House and Senate Education Committee meetings and see how the sausage is made!
If you live more than 50 miles one way outside of Nashville, TEA has a supply of pre-paid double occupancy hotel rooms for members for Monday night (limited basis). If you request a single room, you will be responsible for one half of the room charge.
