TASCS also serves as a member resource for interpretation of state state regulations, access to state and federal legislators and identifying appropriate governmental agency contacts.

  • The Texas ASC Society provides industry representation and serves as the primary point of contact for issues related to the ASC industry. As the only surgery center trade association in Texas, TASCS is available to listen to your concerns and address them through the appropriate channels, either through legislative advocacy or regulatory representation.

  • Legislative and regulatory advocacy. TASCS represents surgery center interests in front of legislators, regulatory agencies, media, insurers and other organizations that impact the ASC industry. Through lobbying, TASCS supports legislation that is favorable to the Texas ASC industry and actively opposes harmful legislation. 
  • Membership supports education through annual conferences, webinars and regional meetings. Membership also offers discounted registration fees for these events. TASCS educational events offer the opportunity to gain valuable CEUs and CASC credits while networking with surgery center colleagues.

  • Membership also offers numerous leadership opportunities to actively participate in TASCS through board membership, committee service, testifying before committees and other activities that directly allow members to help their fellow surgery centers and actively participate in activities that affect surgery centers. 

  • Networking through conferences, events and community forums. TASCS conferences bring ASC leaders from across the state together in a common location. TASCS community forums allow surgery centers to communicate directly with their colleagues on surgery center operations, policies and procedures, forms, and other topics that allow centers to look beyond their walls for vital information.
