Trustee Advocates Summit

Community Connections. Capitol Impact.

Amplify Your Voice

Across Texas, school trustees provide education oversight and citizen governance to ensure our public schools meet the expectations of our local communities. The community perspective these leaders — and their constituencies — bring is critically important to state policymakers.  

The Trustee Advocates Summit will provide school boards and their superintendents with a roadmap, tools, and techniques to help them find, use, and amplify their voices and the voices of their communities, to influence state education policy.

Attendees will also learn from other school district leaders as they network and share ideas about how they will apply these tools and techniques before, during, and after the 89th legislative session.



August 20-22, 2024

Participants will learn core skills for building a community-based advocacy system in their school district. This 2-day session serves as a pre-requisite for the one-day Strategic Engagement Session.



August 22-23, 2024

Participants will learn how to leverage community-based advocacy to identify levers of power and inspire voter engagement. The 2024 Advocacy Foundations Session or participation in the 2023 Trustee Advocates Summit meet the pre-requisite requirement for the one-day Strategic Engagement Session.
