Perpetual Motion, Continued Growth

From Crisis to Clarity

Each TMA year starts with the Distressed Investing Conference—and last month, 2024 kicked off in Las Vegas with more than 1,000 participants igniting the moment and sparking our year ahead.

Now, as we settle into TMA’s 2024, chapter, regional, global, and international opportunities begin in earnest. I invite one and all to be motivated and invigorated by the endless experiences that await you. The message is simple: Be the spark and seize the moment. As you do, embrace a world of TMA innovation and imagination that displays how—together—we can connect, learn, and grow.

In my upcoming travels, I too will learn from our members and leaders who continue to imagine new ways to heighten the TMA experience and raise the bar by defining member value and how it continues to grow ever more relevant.

March will feature the Florida Chapter Conference in Tampa, where a statewide conference experience draws not just from Florida but much of the Southeast and other parts of the country too.

The always standout Mid-America Regional Conference in April—hosted by TMA Chicago/Midwest, Detroit, Minnesota, Northern Ohio, and West Michigan Chapters—will be held in Grand Rapids, Michigan, for the first time. This cooperative of Midwest chapters never disappoints with fantastic educational resources and endless opportunities to network and connect.

TMA Rocky Mountain, now seven states strong, joins TMA Arizona for a second year of a joint chapter experience in Scottsdale, Arizona, that has already taken on the feel of a regional conference. Farther west, TMA SoCal and NorCal will bring an expanse of members together at one of our organization’s most popular joint chapter programs—the pure networking extravaganza—in Napa Valley, California.

June’s East Coast classic, the Mid-Atlantic Regional Symposium, hosted by TMA Philadelphia-Wilmington, New Jersey, and Chesapeake Chapters, continues to grow into something approaching a national-level event in attracting so many to the famed boardwalk of Atlantic City, New Jersey.

The TMA Global Network of Women, this year celebrating its 10th anniversary, will surely ignite thought leadership and opportunity at its May global conference in Chicago. The TMA NextGen Leadership Conference, meanwhile, heads to Toronto to open a world of TMA opportunity to dynamic up-and-coming leaders of our industry.

Mid-June will boast the second TMA Global International Symposium along with the TMA European Annual, both being held in London. This worldwide event will also host a TMA Global Executive Board meeting, a TMA UK pre-conference kickoff, and premier programming to connect our leaders and members from all over the world.

The chapters of the Southwest gather in Texas in April for a tried-and-true experience in San Antonio, while the Southeast chapters will bring many from near and far to historic Savannah, Georgia, for their regional opportunity in August.
