Now Rescheduled: 2022 TAMEST Annual Conference

Given the elevated risks of convening in-person during this time, TAMEST is rescheduling our 2022 Annual Conference to June 20–22, 2022, at the Westin Riverwalk, San Antonio. We know this is a disappointment, but we hope by moving the event to June we can best experience the stellar program in person together.
