TIA Conference 2021
Because of all the uncertainty caused by Covid, the executive committee has decided to do a Zoom TIA meeting on Saturday, March 6th at 10:00 a.m. The main order of business will be the election of new officers as required by the constitution. You must be a current TIA member to vote. A request for people interested in running for office was put out at the last meeting in September and was met with five people expressing interest. There are five offices to fill: President, President-Elect, Secretary, Treasurer, and Liaison Officer for Organizational Affairs. After opening the floor to nominations, the election will take place. If no one else is nominated, a motion to accept the list of candidates may be made, seconded, and voted on to accept the five current nominees. If someone is nominated, you would be asked to vote for five. These five who are elected will meet and determine who is best qualified for each position for this first time in the reorganization to meet the guidelines of the newly adopted constitution. Terms are for three years, so, hereafter, either two or three people will be elected to specific positions. (The five elected will determine at their meeting who will serve two years and who will serve three this first time.) Read the letter of interest from the 5 TIA members that are interested in running for the new executive committee by downloading the file below.
Carol Zuccone, Treasurer, Donna Greene, President-Elect, and myself are stepping down since taking over TIA in 2014 after Pat Johnson’s passing. I want to sincerely thank Carol and Donna for their help and support in making sure that Dr. Johnson’s mission of TIA was carried forward.
It is also time to renew your membership for 2021. You may fill out the attached form on the membership page or print it out and send it with your check to: Dr. Carol Zuccone,8303 Southwest Freeway, Suite 216, Houston, TX 77074.
