Welcome Summer!

One of the primary benefits of TMA is access to industry networking opportunities. Our Chapter Committees have planned and hosted several great networking events so far this year including:
  • annual ABL Panel
  • regular breakfast events
  • NOW wine tasting
  • NextGen social
  • panel discussion focused on family business issues
  • social with CFA
  • satellite events in Portland and Providence 
And that's just at the Northeast chapter level. Our members have also had the opportunity to attend the national Distressed Investing Conference in Las Vegas and the regional Credit & Bankruptcy Symposium at Foxwoods. Opportunities continue to be strong as we head into the second half of the year with the following events on the horizon:
  • Charity Golf Outing at Salem Country Club
  • September breakfast panel focused on the food and beverage industry
  • NextGen Oktoberfest Social
  • Satellite programs in Maine and Rhode Island
  • a NOW event
  • Northeast Conference in Saratoga Springs with nearby TMA Chapters
  • the Annual Holiday Gala
Members are encouraged to take full advantage of all these opportunities. Dates and details are below. At the local, regional, national and international levels, TMA professionals are dedicated to working with companies to increase enterprise value, preserve equity, manage disruption, and drive significantly improved results. We look forward to seeing you soon.
Thanks, and have a great summer!
