The Gulf Coast Region brings together communicators from ESC Regions 1,2, and 3. Don’t let the name fool you! We are way more than just the southern part of the Gulf Coast, we also include the border region from Brownsville to Laredo. While we generally meet 2-4 times a year, we do try to keep in touch more and are always available to each other for helping out our fellow TSPRA’ns.

SPRINT is the TSPRA chapter for Greater North Central Texas, serving members in ESC Regions 9, 10 and 11.

Every other month, members are invited to a large-group seminar that includes a “big idea” focus in a central location. Then, in the months in between seminars, SPRINT holds simultaneous sub-regional meetings that are closer to members’ home districts.

Members also receive updates regularly via the SPRINT in Action! e-newsletter and the SPRINT private Facebook group.
