Our Mission

The mission of IMCAT is to support and serve the instructional materials community by sharing our expertise and knowledge.

We believe in being good stewards of our resources; in advocating for meaningful policies, practices, and funding; and that expertise begins with training.

The Instructional Materials Coordinators' Association of Texas, formerly known as the Textbook Coordinators' Association of Texas, offers the only regular training for instructional materials coordinators in public school districts or open enrollment charter schools. IMCAT's mission is to train and assist instructional materials professionals so they can help the students of Texas.

Throughout the year, IMCAT acts as a clearing house for coordinators who have questions or problems with their ordering, warehousing, delivery or inventory. Veteran coordinators offer their expertise and knowledge to help fellow IMCAT members work smoothly with one goal in mind — getting the materials to the kids.

At IMCAT's Annual Conference each December, new coordinators get hands-on computer training in the complex state ordering system known as EMAT.
