The theme for this anniversary year conference is "30 years of Working to End Sexual Violence in Texas." This theme is reflective of TAASA's collective long-term dedication to meeting the needs of survivors in Texas through services and social change. TAASA has overcome many barriers to develop and protect sexual assault services in communities across Texas and together we are changing Texas for better. This year's conference will celebrate accomplishments as well as highlight the considerable work left undone. Workshops will include: advanced clinical, basic and intermediate advocacy, primary prevention, social justice, underserved populations, sexual assault nurse examiners, volunteer management and more. Workshop proposals are being accepted until Sept 1, 2011.

Strengthening Military-Civilian Community Partnerships to Respond to Sexual Assault is an interactive two-day training that will help participants establish partnerships with local military installations in order to effectively respond to the needs of sexual assault victims in the military. Throughout this training, participants will build knowledge about military systems, protocols, and culture to improve service provision to military sexual assault victims and to develop an appreciation of the perspectives of their future collaborative partners. It is through this developing sense of awareness that civilians will begin to understand who the military Service Member is, the culture they need to live and operate in, what motivates him/her, and what the military victim needs when working with community-based advocates. With the knowledge gained through this training process, in combination with their existing expertise in sexual assault, participants will be able to serve as knowledgeable resources to military installations throughout the United States.
