I hope that everyone has made it home safely, has rested up from the conference, and is ready to implement everything you learned at the conference.

As we stated during the conference in the weeks and months ahead TAM will be working toward gathering information from each of its member organizations to create impact statements.  We will begin this process by encouraging everyone to update their profiles on the TAM website. If you'd like to get a head start, you can log-in and update your profile today.

I also wanted to take the time to thank each of the organizations that supported the TAM conference this year.  We could not put on the conference we do without their support


Conference Host:
  • National Park Service
  • Titanic Museum Attraction
  • The Hatfield & McCoy Dinner Show
  • Bush's Visitor Center
  • Ole Smokey Tennesse Moonshine
  • Compass Rose Room, Margaritaville Island Hotel
  • Alcatraz East Crime Museum
And extended special thanks to our guest speakers, Mary Kellog-Joslyn and Bill May; auctioneer, Jonathan Hickerson; and to all of the organizations that contributed to the TAM Auction. 

Lastly, I would like to take this time to ask for forgiveness and recognize a board member rolling off of the board that I failed to recognize at the closing lunch.  Theresa Hammons has served on the board for several years and deserves recognition for the time she has put into moving this organization forward.  Theresa has served as an area representative, treasurer, vice-president and conference program chair. Theresa, THANK YOU for your service to TAM and please forgive me for my oversight.   

Looking forward to the 2018 TAMfam reunion. (I see a t-shirt in our future),
