    The Texas Aggie Bar Association is soliciting ideas for other programs, events, and benefits that TABA can offer to its members consistent with its charitable purposes.  TABA remains a charitable organization with the charitable goals of supporting through scholarship Aggies who are beginning law school as well as networking with fellow Aggie lawyers. TABA already hosts its Annual Tailgate;  Annual Social, Annual Conference, and Annual Banquet; Howdy Hours; and other networking functions throughout the year.  TABA also recognizes Aggie lawyers through its annual Aggie Lawyer of the Year award and supports Aggies entering law school with its annual scholarships.  Of course, we are an all volunteer organization with limited resources so we have to carefully consider the demand any potential program, event or benefit would have on our resources. Accordingly, not every idea can be implemented. Please send your ideas to Ken Krock, President, TABA at info@aggielaw.org.  TABA's Board will meet for a day long planning session in late June to consider your ideas. Gig 'em!!
