Quarterly President’s Newsletter
Date: April 13, 2015
Welcome Spring! Now that the cold weather is finally behind us (for the most part), I’d like to take this opportunity to fill you in on the board’s accomplishments in the third fiscal quarter and the efforts underway for the remainder of the year.
As you would imagine, your Windy City co-chairs, Kim Drennan and Angelyn Pennington are extremely busy putting the final touches on what will be a great 29th Annual Windy City Summit! In addition to our fabulous keynote, Mellody Hobson (announced during the second quarter), they have secured Dan Harris, best-selling author and anchor of Nightline and GMA Weekend Edition as our Wednesday luncheon speaker! Comedian Pat McGann will be returning as the Thursday luncheon speaker. The conference program committee, headed by Gary Haman has finalized the final program, which will be sent to the printer shortly. Members of this year’s program committee are Michael Thorsen, Kas Henry, Jeremy Simon, Maria Preston and Tom Digan.
Your TMAC Vice President, Tricia Kelly developed the Board of Directors Interest Form as a means for association members to communicate an interest in serving on the TMAC board. The form was sent to all members in early April. She is also working with Rob Gosma (Policy Chair) and Susan Donatello (Academic Relations Chair) on revisions to the intern policy.
Treasurer, Nitixa Patel has a full plate, managing the finances of TMAC, issuing monthly financial statements and working to document her procedures for the incoming Treasurer. Your TMAC Secretary, Cathy McGarry has been busy documenting and posting minutes for each board and business meeting. Your Program Committee Co-Chairs (Kris Tobin and Mike Quoss) coordinated three terrific programs for our monthly meetings. All topics were informative and timely.
In addition to putting together three terrific monthly meeting venues, your Meeting Site Co-Chairs (Sunil Patel and Mandy Campbell) planned the spring networking event at Headquarters Beercade in River North as well as securing this year’s Banker’s Day event. Be on the lookout for the registration email which will be sent in late April.
In addition to working on his marketing strategy, Kevin Sheehan worked with GSS to coordinate the annual election communications and management of the officer election process at last week’s Annual Meeting. He is also working on materials and staffing for the TMAC booth at Windy City.
Joe Locatelli, our website chair, worked with GSS to complete the standard operating procedure calendar for all board positions. The new calendar has been posted in the board of directors section of the TMAC website.
As you can see, it has been a very full quarter for all of our board members. Thanks to all for your efforts! They are sincerely appreciated.
Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions. I hope to see you at the Windy City Summit or a monthly meeting very soon!
Best Regards, Julie Qualiato
