Happy New Year TRC! 2018 has arrived and I’m excited to be sharing the next year with all of you. TRC had an incredible 2017. Under Lorie Wood’s leadership, TRC celebrated our 5th Year Anniversary and throughout the year we focused on “Learning from the Past” and “Growing for the Future”.
In 2018, I’d like to continue on in the spirit of growth and fun. TRC is an incredible, growing organization that we are all fortunate to be a part of. Looking ahead, I hope to lead the effort to enhance the value of your membership while continuing to make our events and programs fun, interactive, and something we all look forward to.
Not only does TRC host two amazing meetings per year, but we’ll continue hosting after-hours events as well. Who doesn’t love a fun night out on Broadway in downtown Nashville! We’ll be selective and intentional about the programs we choose to present to you during our meetings, and we’ll have some fun while we’re at it, TRC style of course.
We’ll have new sponsorship opportunities that we anticipate past and future sponsors to love. Our Corporate Membership will see the revival of our Corporate Roundtable Session and will have a new tool to collaborate with other TN relocation professionals for benchmarking opportunities, discussion and assistance. You’ll see us on Social Media more, so don’t forget to share, retweet and comment on our posts! We hope to be in communication with you more often to create an environment of collaboration and knowledge.
Our talented Board of Directors is already planning an exciting 2018 for all of us to look forward to. We are exploring new ideas for Scholarship, Outreach, Programs, Logistics, and everything in between. We’re keeping things “outside the box” … just the way we like it.
We will continue our support of the Oasis Center in 2018 and we will continue our dedication to fundraising for the Peter Hiro Memorial Scholarship Fund that we renamed in 2017. We hope that you will pass along the scholarship opportunity to anyone who may qualify so we can reach all of the deserving students in TN.
If you haven’t yet renewed your membership with TRC for 2018, you will definitely want to do so soon. Don’t miss out on this exciting year ahead! We are looking forward to seeing each of you at our Spring Meeting, held at Nissan Stadium on April 12th.
Wishing you a happy, healthy and productive 2018!
All my best,
