Why is my ACCOUNT INACTIVE?

If you login and you see ACCOUNT INACTIVE, you can no longer access the TAS member area. If you feel your account was de-activated in error, please contact your district liaison.

Usually accounts are de-activated by district administrators who monitor teachers from their districts. Accounts are sometimes de-activated if a teachers registers twice by mistake or fails to select a seminar choice.
