Membership In TASC

TASC has two levels of membership: regular membership and Silver Star membership. 


Regular membership dues are $60 per school for a one-year membershipif membership applications and dues are postmarked by September 30. Regular membership dues postmarked after September 30 must include a late fee of $15increasing the cost of regular membership to $75.


Silver Star membership is attained by a school paying the regular membership dues and making an additional $25 donation when dues are paid. (Dues for Silver Star membership postmarked by September 30 are $85 per school; dues for Silver Star membership postmarked after September 30 are $100 per school.)


Donations received from Silver Star members will be used to help fund student scholarships to camp and to further the recognition of TASCs student leaders. The intent behind adding this tier of membership is to help keep TASCs programs for students strong and affordable for individual participants. We hope that many of our TASC member schools will consider participating in this Silver Star membership program!


Please remember thatto avoid the late fee added to either level of membershipall TASC memberships need to be renewed by a postmark date of September 30.

Registration information will be mailed out at least six weeks prior to each workshop. If you have questions about a specific workshop, please contact the appropriate Area Representative or his/her advisor.  Be sure not to miss the workshop in your area!
  • State Convention: TASC’s annual state convention is held each spring. This event is planned and hosted by the school whose students are elected to the position of Secretary-Host. The event is normally a two and one-half day event. Approximately 700-800 student and adult delegates attend each year.
  • Summer Leadership Camp: TASC’s Leadership camp is typically held the first week of June at Cumberland University in Lebanon, TN. At this five-day camp student leaders from across the state come together to discover and develop their leadership skills. Students are assigned to councils and these groups plan and carry out numerous activities and projects throughout the fun-filled week.
  • National LEAD Conferences: The LEAD Conferences offer experiential leadership skills development at an affordable price to students and advisers in the National Honor Society, the National Junior Honor Society, and the National Association of Student Councils. There are three LEAD conferences each year—one in November and two in January or February—held in a different city across the United States.
  • SASC Conference: Established in 1932, the Southern Association of Student Councils is an association of fifteen Southeastern states that provides high school and middle level student leaders with opportunities for networking, building leadership skills, sharing ideas, participating in service projects, and getting motivated to make a difference in their schools, communities, and in their own lives. Their adult advisors enjoy the same benefits—plus the sharing of leadership curricula and strategies for supporting their students in becoming better leaders.
  • NASC National Conference: The NASC (National Association of Student Councils) National Conference provides a unique and balanced experience that celebrates and enriches student leadership. It is a program of the NASSP (National Association of Secondary School Principals), and held in a different city each summer.
