#TASA20 Midwinter Conference Recap

We had a great first visit to the 2020 TASA Midwinter Conference and made some great connections with Texas administrators and board members. We also learned a lot to prepare us for next year.

Five of us from the REEDER team made the trip down to Austin to exhibit but also attend some of the informative sessions. The TASA Midwinter app was super helpful and provided attendees with more information about our company.
