South Texas Governing Council News


Hello from the South Texas Chapter Council,



First, I want to thank our TEHA-STC members for all your support each year as we continue to grow. I also want to thank our Ex-Officio, Edgar Cruz for all his selfless acts he showed during his tenure on the council. He helped lay the foundation to expand our local chapter to boundaries that TEHA-STC has not been to, and we hope he continues to help in years to come. I want to recognize our current council members for their hard work and dedication and welcome our incoming new council members. I can say that we will continue to work hard to take TEHA-STC chapter in a positive direction.




I want to thank all participants that made the 15th Annual Educational Conference the biggest and best yet this past December 6, 7 and 8, 2018.  It was an extraordinary conference with lots of fun, raffle items, great topics and a motivational speaker that was one of a kind.  The council has worked hard to give our members the best conference there is to offer.  We are already planning for our next upcoming training and annual conference.  Be on the lookout for future emails.




TEHA-South Texas Chapter, along with Be the Match, would like to thank everyone that participated in the toy drive at the 15th Annual TEHA-STC Educational Conference.  Toys were delivered before Christmas to kids at San Antonio Methodist Hospital Transplant Unit by Ex-officio Edgar Cruz.  He stated “Spreading Christmas cheer to children that need it the most is something that brings happiness to everyone during the Christmas Season”.




Please contact the council if you would like information on the J. Victor Baldovinos Scholarship, which includes the Conference Registration, or if you are interested in being a speaker.  As an added bonus, you will be eligible to receive free CEU’s for the day you speak.
