Welcome to the year of IMPACT to INNOVATION. Welcome to the world of TMA Tomorrow, brought to you by the unrestrained power of pure TMA imagination. Together we journey into 2021 more empowered, more emboldened, and more confident than ever before.
In our pivot with purpose in 2020, we showed resilience, fortitude, and the willingness to stand with, and for, each other. Because of that, today we stand confident, credible, and TMA strong. The freshness, excitement, and opportunities that await us in 2021 are already taking hold.
It starts at the top, and TMA President Matthew English, CTP, has set forth a clear and passionate vision of a TMA that, in his words, “will strive to be Relevant, Innovative, Confident, Focused, and Unafraid.” He talks of demonstrating value to members, chapters, international affiliates, and the marketplace. He champions innovation through technology, networking, education, community, and more.
Matthew also champions confidence in who we are as professionals and takes “better together” to new heights, knowing that we, the professionals of TMA, are the first responders to business crisis and that the pride and power of how we support each other makes TMA a standout brand worldwide.
And perhaps most importantly, Matthew talks of the urgency of being unafraid of having tough discussions on creating a more diverse and inclusive industry.
From the top of TMA Nation to the leaders of our chapters and our members worldwide, one can see creativity, hope, and many points of light that in these early days of 2021 are already defining TMA Tomorrow.
This month, we will hold our Distressed Investing Conference, always a defining moment for TMA, and it will be even more so in the virtual environment. With deal days, networking, human interest, and real-world, real-time education our professionals want to hear about, talk about, engage in, and connect on, this year’s conference will again set the stage for what lies ahead as we move through economic choppy waters.
When the Money Train Ends—Deals and Steals Post PPP Stimulus, The Never-Ending Retail Apocalypse, It’s a Small World—An International View of Global Dealmaking, and our fan favorite, Mega Trends 4.0, are among the education sessions featured in three action-packed days that will have something for everyone.
We pivoted with purpose in 2020, and we will again do so in 2021. Whether it be with more TMA Town Halls or improving on our marquee TMA Restructuring Boot Camp, innovation and creativity are on our side.
With a strong foundation, a growing membership, and more opportunities than ever before, the value of what we at TMA pride ourselves on in supporting our worldwide community is great and grows more empowering every day.
Your support keeps us relevant, fresh, and motivated. The freshness of our leaders and the engagement of our members keeps the TMA machine in motion. And the many points of light that created our success going into the uncertainties of the pandemic will be what guides us back to where we will once again be together, having weathered COVID’s storm by doing what we do to assert ourselves as the leading organization in the corporate restructuring space.
TMA Tomorrow starts today. Today is where we build on the successes fueled by the innovation and imagination that saw us through 2020. With all of that on our side, this year starts bright, but what is yet to come and the opportunities that lie ahead will again be examples for all to follow.
