UIL Capital Conference
17th ANNUAL UIL CAPITAL CONFERENCE
The University of Texas at Austin
July 12-13, 2013
Think of it as Coaching School for UIL Academics!
Held each summer at The University of Texas at Austin, the UIL Capital Conference offers everything a speech coach, theatre director, academic coach or coordinator—high school or elementary, middle or junior high—needs to know, from eligibility rules to setting up a budget to prose and poetry selections to researching the cross-examination debate resolution. Featuring many of the state's most outstanding and successful academic coaches and coordinators as well as many of the League's state contest directors, the Capital Conference is the most economical and effective way to make certain your school year kicks off on the right foot.
The conference will be held entirely at the Unversity Teaching Center (UTC). See Capital Conference map
