The groundhog saw his shadow, therefore calling of a few more weeks of Winter, but hopefully soon it will start dwindling away to Spring. TARC is already off to a good start for the 2018 year and we have plenty of events coming up.
We held the Mid-Winter Meeting on January 12 at the Cool Springs Marriott in Franklin. The weather tried to keep us down, but that didn’t stop us from having excellent speakers! The educational sessions included information ranging from business law to effective communication. Keynote speaker, Greg Hayne, coached us on how to start and maintain an excellent service aspect of our companies.
Everyone, please check to make sure that your company has renewed your dues for the 2018 year!
We have a lot of events coming up, not only for TARC, but for the roofing industry in general. On March 6 and 7, the NRCA is hosting a Roofing Day in Washington D.C. It is a great opportunity to speak with members of Congress and their staff as well as have your voice heard!
The TARC Golf Tournament will be held April 19 at The Crossing Golf Course in Franklin. Due to inclement weather we cancelled the reception following the Mid-Winter Meeting, but we will be making it up on April 18. The reception will still be at KINGs Bowl, in Franklin. The spring board meeting will be held before the reception.
The 2018-2019 TARC Scholarship applications are now available online. These need to be filled out and postmarked no later than May 1. This is a great opportunity for TARC members and their families.
Lastly, the registration for the Summer Convention is now online. It will be held from June 13-16 at the Hilton Pensacola Beach. We look forward to seeing everyone there!
