Last reminders before departure for Seven Springs

Please take a moment to read these important notes and reminders before heading out to this year’s State Conference.

JUDGES NEEDED!

As the State Conference draws closer, we find ourselves in need of more judges, particularly for Thursday, 4/20. If you are able to help, please fill out the form here http://patsa.org/conferences/state/judge-signup asap. Advisors, parents, and other chaperones all make great judges. Please let me know if you have any questions/concerns. One of the great things about PA-TSA is the willingness of those involved to jump in and do whatever is necessary to do what’s best for our kids. Thanks for considering - see you soon! Lauren

Judges Needed!

With less than three weeks until the 2016 PA-TSA State Conference, we need your help. At present, we are short approximately 30 judges for various competitive events. If you will be attending the conference and are able to help us out, please email me directly at llapinski [at] patsa.org or fill out the form located here: http://patsa.org/conferences/state/judge-signup. Advisors, chaperones, and guests make great judges. While we do our best to match judges to their personal areas of strength, no prior knowledge of specific TSA events is required. All support will be provided. Please consider helping - we need your support to make this year’s conference a success! Lauren Lapinski PA-TSA State Conference Director

PA Announces Text Voting

Pennsylvania TSA is happy to introduce SMS (text message) voting for State Officer Candidate positions. This has been a long time coming for Pennsylvania, but we wanted to be sure we had a system that could handle our needs. After viewing the SMS voting at the 2012 National Conference and attending the informational session, with some security improvements, we believe we have the ideal system for the membership of Pennsylvania. Through the use of SMS voting, we hope to speed up the voting process. Chapters can still choose to use paper ballots, but if you choose the SMS method, each voting delegate must have a phone and must bring the same phone to both Thursday night’s delegate meeting and Friday’s voting session. Support will be offered to all chapters choosing the SMS route. You can read more on our new voting system.
