MESSAGE FROM TPOC PRESIDENT

Hello TPOC Members and friends,

So much time has passed as we continue through this Covid experience. It's now 2022 and hard to believe we are already celebrating spring. As things begin to improve, I pray things are turning around for each of you, bringing more opportunities to gather with those you cherish.

It's exciting to know that travel is cautiously reopening. Many of us have already discovered travel to be manageable as we take to the airways for business and pleasure again. After a two-year hiatus, TPOC is looking forward to coming together for our 20th anniversary. What a special conference we have planned for you. Keeping safety protocols in place, we will enjoy conference and pre-conference activities in multiple locations within the National Gullah Geechee Heritage Corridor. I personally cannot wait to see everyone; many old friends and members have already made plans to join us. So, please check our website for itineraries, registration, and reservations.

TPOC is a team effort and a GREAT team I might add! We've had our ups and downs but like the Energizer Bunny, we keep on going. We could not have done it without the support of each member and of course each member of our board of directors. To continue to make a mark in this industry, we need everyone's continued support. If you have not done so, please take time to send in your 2022 membership renewals. Also, don't forget our monthly virtual meetings. We continue to bring in guest presenters that can help increase our knowledge and hopefully, our bottom line. It is important that our guest see we are there and interested in what they take time to bring to us.

I hope to see you in Savannah/Charleston.

MIND MASSAGE: I AM NOT PARTICULARLY INTERESTED IN SAVING TIME; I PREFER TO ENJOY IT
