We are nearing the end of 2020 and I would like to start off by saying, “We Made It!” While this year has been very difficult and challenging, we’ve seen so many amazing things. We’ve seen the Household Goods industry be on the frontlines during a pandemic and move families across the country. We’ve seen Corporate Housing providers scramble at a moment’s notice to find a place for transferees and their families to live. We’ve seen Tax and Immigration advisors provide the necessary guidance for companies to make sound fiscal decisions. We’ve seen Corporate Mobility Managers sacrifice so much of their time and efforts to ensure the safety of their employees. We’ve seen Real Estate Professionals innovate how they show and sell homes without people stepping foot in a house. We’ve seen Mortgage Providers process loans fast enough to help transferees obtain their dream home. There are so many more of these examples to count and I’m proud of the industry that we are in. I’m also positive on what the future may bring as this year has forced us to innovate our technology and processes, but it has also shown us all how our passion for moving families can bring about so much improvement to our industry.
It is the holiday season and with that said, TRC would like to share a special gift to our membership. For those who have paid a membership in 2020 we will waive next year’s membership fee and roll it over into 2021. While we don’t know what the uncertainty will bring next year, you can count on your TRC Board to provide you with great events (whether virtual or in person), provide great educational content, and enhance our TRC community culture.
I would like to thank our TRC Board of Directors for working hard during this year and come together as a team to make our virtual conference and other fun activities possible. I also would like to challenge all of our members to get more involved in TRC next year either on a committee or run for the board next fall. You are all the future of TRC and your support will drive our continued growth in our organization.
Lastly, I would like to thank all of you for the opportunity to be TRC’s President this year. It’s been an honor and something I will never forget.
Have a great holiday season and I look forward to the next time we get to see each other in person.
Joe DudekTRC President
