Events

  • Fall Area Leadership Workshops: Each fall TASC hosts six Area Leadership Workshops across the state. There are three middle level workshops and three high school level workshops. One workshop for each age level is hosted in each of the three geographic areas of the state: East, Middle, and West. Registration information will be mailed out at least six weeks prior to each workshop. If you have questions about a specific workshop, please contact the appropriate Area Representative or his/her advisor.  Be sure not to miss the workshop in your area!
  • Advisors' Workshop: A workshop for student council advisors is hosted annually. This workshop features an opportunity for advisors from across the state of Tennessee to meet together, network, learn about new ideas and share information. The traditional date of the workshop is the second weekend in November.
  • State Convention: TASC’s annual state convention is held each spring. This event is planned and hosted by the school whose students are elected to the position of Secretary-Host. The event is normally a two and one-half day event. Approximately 700-800 student and adult delegates attend each year.
  • Summer Officers' Workshop:Each summer an overnight workshop is held for student body presidents and one other officer from each school across the state. At this workshop leaders learn techniques for carrying out the responsibilities of the office that they hold. The workshop is held on Sunday-Monday prior to the beginning of Leadership Camp; typically, this is the third Sunday of July. The site of the workshop is the Ridley 4-H Center in Columbia, Tennessee.
  • Summer Leadership Camp: TASC’s Leadership camp is typically held during the third week of July at the Ridley 4-H Center in Columbia, Tennessee. At this five-day camp student leaders from across the state come together to discover and develop their leadership skills. Students are assigned to councils and these groups plan and carry out numerous activities and projects throughout the fun-filled week.
  • National LEAD Conferences: The LEAD Conferences offer experiential leadership skills development at an affordable price to students and advisers in the National Honor Society, the National Junior Honor Society, and the National Association of Student Councils. There are three LEAD conferences each year—one in November and two in January or February—held in a different city across the United States.
  • NASC National Conference:The NASC (National Association of Student Councils) National Conference provides a unique and balanced experience that celebrates and enriches student leadership. It is a program of the NASSP (National Association of Secondary School Principals), and held in a different city each summer.
