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.
It is same Bat Time but a different Bat Channel for this Thursday’s Gulf Coast virtual meeting. So at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, January 28 you will be using this zoom link to attend the meeting.
