TTN Re-branding Initiative. You may have heard hints of a re-branding project that will align with our 20th Anniversary planning. TTN’s Board of Directors has selected an agency and early stages of planning have begun. First up will be research to ascertain what images and words evoke the mission and women of TTN. We will be seeking this feedback from all of our active members so keep an eye out for this survey in the coming weeks. Since we want to launch our new brand along with our plan to celebrate our 20th anniversary, we appreciate your timely response to the questionnaire. We want full representation across the organization.
