    The 2018 TAASA Conference will be a wonderful opportunity for advocates, service providers, preventioneers, and others to make a deep dive into anti-sexual violence.  We invite you to take the plunge into the wide variety of subjects that will be offered in our workshops and keynote speakers. This year's line-up is truly fantastic.  We believe that this conference will make waves that, in the end, attendees can ride all the way home.  Come soak up some sun, play in the surf, and wade into the deeper waters!
