About PGC

General Information

Choose your Event Experience

We are excited to welcome our attendees to Dallas this year! In addition to our in-person event, we will again offer a live-stream experience on Thursday and Friday.  This option allows you to attend remotely and earn your CE hours from the suite of pre-selected programs* plus both general sessions and keynotes.  All live-stream programs will be recorded so you can choose to watch live or at your leisure through December 2022.  Wherever you are and whenever it’s convenient for you, you can be a part of our amazing conference!   In-person attendees will also have access to all live-stream programs and recordings!

*Not all programs are available for streaming.

The Conference App replaces the printed program. If you have already registered for PGC '22, you should have received an email notification with a direct link to the Cvent Events App.

Download the Cvent Events App to create your schedule, connect with other attendees, and find the program and event rooms. TCA will be using the app to provide updates throughout the conference. Stay connected. Visit the App Store or Google Play to download the app now. 

Note: After you download the app, please enter the email address you registered with or else it will not allow you to enter the app. Enter Dallas in the search bar to find the 66th Annual TCA Professional Growth Conference.

Code of Conduct

TCA is dedicated to having a friendly, safe, productive, and welcoming environment for all participants at our conferences and events.

All attendees, speakers, sponsors, exhibitors, board members, and volunteers are required to adhere to the following Code of Conduct. Event organizers will enforce this Code throughout the event entirety. If you are being harassed, notice someone else being harassed, or have any other concern, contact TCA onsite staff immediately.

We are dedicated to providing a harassment-free environment for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity,  religion, veteran status, or other protected groups. We do not tolerate harassment of participants in any form. Sexual language, innuendo, and imagery are not appropriate during any aspect of any TCA sponsored event, including meetings, programs, social events, public chats/forums, social media such as Twitter, or other online media.

Expected behavior:

  • Exercise consideration and respect in your speech and actions.
  • Attempt collaboration before conflict.
  • Refrain from demeaning, discriminatory, or harassing behavior and speech.
  • Be mindful of your surroundings and of your fellow participants. Alert onsite TCA staff if you notice a dangerous situation, someone in distress, or violations of this Code of Conduct, even if they seem inconsequential.
  • Do not disrupt any meeting (e.g., zoom-bombing) or engage in harm or threats of harm of any kind. Do not create or contribute to a safety threat or unsafe or exclusionary situation.
  • Do not take or distribute pictures, videos, copy, or presentation materials unless explicit permission is granted.
