Convention 2011 – It’s a Wrap!

We have closed the books on another successful TCA Annual Convention.  While attendance wasn’t as good as it was in “pre-recession” days, it was better than it has been the previous two years as we staged our most exciting and ambitious event ever. Outdoor exhibitions and demonstrations were added back into the mix this year […]

EVOLUTION | 2012 TCA Annual Convention

Evolution implies change, adaptation and progress. The word suggests a natural yet proactive approach to addressing a changing environment. It is appropriate in these times and in this environment to consider how the conditions surrounding our businesses, our association, and our trade are changing and how we could position ourselves to adapt and take advantage. […]

Message From the Director: Convention Wrap-Up — Tips, Tweets, and Twittering

We can now close the books on the 2009 Tilt-Up Convention. It was the poorest attended convention or symposium in my 16 years of managing the TCA. After attrition (the money we pay for unused rooms that are booked 3 years in advanced) it was the first time we have ever posted a loss on […]

Message From the President: 2009 TCA — Strength in Diversity

Among this year’s accomplishments is the culmination of years of hard work to create a Producers Council and introduction of Term Limits into […]
