February in TMA Nation is always a gleeful time, with the depths of winter being relieved by the great gathering that our Distressed Investing Conference always promises to be. This year will be no exception and, in some ways, will be even more interesting than ever before.
Interesting in that our world is still managing uncertainty, with disruption having become more the norm than the exception. In a year in which we have embarked on the mission of Innovation through Disruption, our actionable organization could not be more about living a theme in real time than the one we have adopted to define 2022.
Those of you who attend this year’s DIC already will have navigated the disruption of ongoing uncertainty simply to be there. By doing so, you will have already been part of the journey that is this conference’s theme.
Embracing disruption, though, is how we have strengthened our organization through and through. TMA has certainly shown how defining we can be, having pivoted with purpose to manage the pandemic by adopting new ways to connect worldwide and being better together when we have been able to gather, as many of you will have experienced at this year’s DIC.
This conference experience will not just set in stone our theme for the year but will reinforce what it means for how we thrive through disruption. Whether it be the education topics that will focus on disruption caused by uncertain interest rates, the unknowns of an unexpected inflation spike, or supply chain breakdowns, managing these unknowns through innovative solutions is what we will do to tackle them.
Likewise, this year for TMA will be a year where we continue to innovate, creating member value that surpasses what we built to get to this moment in this year of Innovation through Disruption. I look forward to sharing with you soon the many innovations that are new in 2022. Some will look familiar but will have a fresh face. Some will be new and will renew and refresh all that we have built in the last two years.
Some highlights include a rebranding of the TMA Town Hall, featuring curated programming from the TMA Learning LinkTM and including more professional development credit opportunities. Watch for a product partnership in which TMA will offer deep dive resources on highly regarded and critically important restructuring related topics. Later this year we will be rolling out a new user-friendly website and, with technology on our side, will innovate by offering more resources, touch points, and connectivity, all from TMA Global.
TMA has already launched an international edition of the TMA Weekly Report, and now our entire worldwide membership can bask in the accomplishments of our growing TMA international community.
Whether you experience Innovation through Disruption through the grandeur of the Distressed Investing Conference or all that is coming your way as a valued TMA member, be assured that we at TMA Global are taking member value to the next level and, hand in hand with our leaders, guarantee to again be the worldwide leading organization in the corporate restructuring, renewal, and corporate health space.
