Civication

Make plans to come to the Capitol the Tuesday of your Spring Break to talk to your legislators and enjoy the great entertainment Nashville has to offer!  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. and a complimentary lunch! 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 help realize the TEA 20/20 Vision of ending the test-and-punish regime and increasing school funding!
 
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.
 
Please use the online registration form to reserve your spot today!
