LEAD Attendees


The 2013 LEAD Conference will be hosted at the The Omni Nashville Hotel.

Located on Fifth Avenue between Demonbreun and Korean Veterans Boulevard, the Omni Nashville Hotel design is a modern expression of the city’s distinct character, incorporating natural materials, exposed steel and regional limestone. The multi-story hotel and newly expanded Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum will share meeting and entertainment space and bring additional restaurants and retail venues to this dynamic destination in downtown Nashville.


The conference rate at the Omni is $189.00/night for single or double occupancy. This rate is available until September 14, 2013. Be sure to identify yourself with the 2013 LEAD Conference in order to obtain special rates.

How much TASL credit can I earn by attending LEAD?

  • Attendees can earn 7 hours of TASL credit at LEAD.

What do I need to do to earn the 7 hours of credit?

  • At registration, pick up a Professional Development Attendance Card.
  • Complete all ID information on the card.
  • A box at the bottom of the card will include a listing of session times. As you attend breakout sessions, enter the session ID on the blank. At the conclusion of the session, the session facilitator will give you a passcode to write on the card. This is very important because you will not be given credit for the session without the code.
  • At the conclusion of the conference, turn your card in at the registration desk.

Are there specific requirements for which sessions I must attend in order to earn credit?

  • You will automatically receive 2 hours of credit for the two general sessions at LEAD.
  • You must attend 5 additional hours of breakout sessions in order to earn 7 hours of TASL credit at LEAD.

Can I earn partial credit if I do not attend the required number of sessions?

  • No. Credit will only be awarded for attendees who have completed the required 7 hours.
