Join NASAA and our host, the Texas Commission on the Arts, for three days of learning and networking opportunities for state arts agency staff and council members, and experience the energy and rhythm that Austin, The Live Music Capital of the World®, has to offer.
Our agenda includes engaging sessions, briefings, and special events showcasing the artists and cultural landmarks that are uniquely Austin. Assembly 2010 offers something for everyone:
Back by popular demand, briefing sessions on a wide range of topics keep you up to date on the latest research and best practices.
New this year, dialogue sessions engage you in discussion and debate about major challenges and trends affecting state arts agencies and their constituents.
Also new this year, flashes of inspiration offer a lightning round of presentations on innovative ideas from across the country.
All peer groups gather in sessions that provide learning and networking opportunities for staff and council members.
In the Assembly 2010 Resource Area, share and exchange examples of your most useful and compelling materials with your colleagues.
Whether you are coping with a current crisis or focusing on the future—or both—Assembly 2010 will be a source of information and inspiration. All state arts agency council members and staff are encouraged to participate. Don't miss this chance to harvest great ideas, reconnect with your colleagues and draw strength from your state arts agency community.
Down-home yet sophisticated, laid-back and bustling with high energy, traditional and avant-garde at the same time, the Capital City has plenty to offer Assembly 2010 participants from its history, diverse culture, small-town charm, and the surrounding beauty of the landscape—along with some of the country's best barbecue and Tex-Mex. So dig out your favorite boots and plan to meet us in Austin. Let this city show you the definition of Austin-tatious hospitality.
The Omni Austin Hotel Downtown is our conference hotel, where the majority of sessions are held. The Omni Austin Hotel is located in the heart of downtown and is just one block from the famous Sixth Street Entertainment District, where you can experience the best live music, dining and nightlife that this area has to offer.
Austin's temperate climate offers a great atmosphere for visitors, with average highs in October of 82°F and lows around 60°F. Be prepared for possible rain and drizzle.
Comfortable business attire is appropriate for all Assembly 2010 events. Dress for Thursday evening's opening reception is casual. Keep in mind that hotel conference rooms may be cooler than you prefer, so bring along a blazer or other cover.
We look forward to seeing you in Austin!
