What a weird world we now live in. Maybe the word weird is not appropriate, but with all of the changes we have made in our daily lives and sacrifices we have made, it seems to me a pretty appropriate description. Practicing safety for our families is our responsibility, so putting safety first in our businesses is also a critical responsibility we make for our association. By now you have heard that we re-scheduled our 2020 TAA Convention to August 13-16 in San Marcos, TX at the Embassy Suites Hotel and Convention Center. Making this decision was made difficult not knowing what our safety protocols were and when we could once again make our plans. At this time the re-scheduled convention is now ready for your registrations and your reservations. I want to take this opportunity to thank your Board of Directors for working hard this past year putting the convention together and then being asked to re-schedule and make the changes to re-fit the new time frame. We also put together a Convention task force to assist in making the convention fit into its new schedule. This task force along with the TAA staff and the board put a lot of work into making this happen in a very short period of time. I hope everyone makes their plans to attend and support the convention this summer. Your support to the TAA is so important to the task of representing our industry throughout Texas and the United States.

I also want to take this time to thank our Legislative Task Force in working for you during this period of Sunset Commission evaluations. The Task Force has submitted to the Commission our goals for professional representation via our license and requirements from TDLR.

We should be seeing the results of the Commissions decisions, hopefully, very soon. Thank you to Jim Swigert for heading up this group and keeping everyone informed and updated.

Lastly, I want to thank Krista Richter and her staff for all the hard work they put in on behalf of your association. Their dedicated work and direction have been such a value to me, the Board of Directors and the TAA. When you see these folks at convention please take the time to personally thank them for the job they do for all of us.

Have fun this summer. Please stay safe, and I look forward to seeing everyone in San Marcos in August.
