To ensure that attendees are fully aware of everything you need prior to the event, we are providing you with some simple instructions for your arrival and participation during the event. Please read these carefully.
Obviously the first concern attendees will have this weekend is related to the pending inclement weather. Based on weather forecasting the last several days, we have decided to start the 2018 Annual Meeting later in the day on Saturday. Even with these changes to limit the effect of inclement weather, conditions in your area may make it hazardous for you to travel this weekend. Above all, we want you to ensure your own safety, so please do not attempt to come to the Annual Meeting if you feel this would put you in jeopardy.
As stated above, the agenda has been adjusted to allow for a later start time. We will begin registration on Saturday at 9:30am. The first sessions will begin at 10:30am. Registration will stay open throughout the day, so any late arrivals will be accommodated. Please see the attached agenda for further details.
The meeting is being held in the Janet Ayers Academic Center on the campus of Belmont University. Driving Directions to Belmont University are attached to this message.
Campus Map & Parking
Located on the corner of 15th Ave S and Wedgewood, the Janet Ayers Academic Center has parking available below the building. If you turn south on 15th Ave S, you would turn right at the roundabout, which takes you across the front of Ayers. Turn right at the first stop sign, and then right again at the next stop sign to enter the underground parking garage. A Campus Map is attached to this message.
The Conference Center is on the 4th Floor of Ayers Academic Center. Please take the north elevator from the parking garage to access the 4th Floor.
Because of the later start on Saturday, we will not be providing breakfast pastries prior to the first session on Saturday. Lunch will be provided for all attendees on both days. Breakfast will be provided on Sunday (including the President's Breakfast meeting for Students and Young Professionals).
We will again be using a Conference Event App for attendees to follow the schedule, important announcements, session information, and much more. You will follow the links below to download the Conference Event App.
The SEATA AT Educational Event App hosts our TATS Annual Meeting Info. Once you open the app, you will search for "TATS2018" to find the app for our meeting.
Each attendee's username is the email address you used for registration. Your password is set to "TATS2018" and you will be prompted to change it once you login.
In order to receive your CEU Certificates, attendees are required to complete any surveys and/or post-course assessments through our Conference Event App. Surveys and quizzes will become available at the scheduled start time of each session and will close 15 minutes after each session. If you are having an issue with the conference surveys, please come to the Registration area to discuss this with the TATS Secretary.
CEUs will be issued via email following the event. Attendees will receive a separate email for each EBP session. Attendees will also receive an email for Category A sessions each day.
We will again be having the Conference game, where points can be earned for completing different functions during the meeting via the Conference Event app. Door Prizes will be provided to attendees based on performance in the Conference game.
The Young Professionals Committee will again be hosting a social event for all attendees following the sessions on Saturday evening. The social event will be held in the 9th Floor West End Banquet Room of the Hilton Garden Inn Nashville/Vanderbilt. Appetizers will be provided and a cash bar will be available. We will also have TVs available to watch the Tennessee Titans playoff football game.
