On behalf of the members of the Texas Border Coalition, we hope you will plan to attend our 2015 Summer Meeting to be held June 24-25 at South Padre Island.


The meeting will feature a legislative panel discussion with border leaders, including state Reps. Ryan Guillen, Eddie Lucio III, Mando Martinez and Rene Oliveira, and moderated by Steve Taylor, editor of the Rio Grande Guardian. Panelists will share their insights on how the 84th legislative session affected the border region and the outlook for border issues during the 2015-16 interim and beyond. 

Paco Valentin, state director for Rural Development at the U.S. Department of Agriculture, also will provide an economic development update. 

The host hotel for the summer meeting will be the Schlitterbahn Beach Resort, 33261 State Park Road 100. Reservations are available by calling the resort at (956) 761-1160; group name is the Texas Border Coalition. Please make your reservations by Friday, June 19, to guarantee the TBC group rate.
