TTIA Getting More Efficient For Its Members
Every member will have a profile on
Event registrations easier online

TTIA is working to be a more efficient and accessible organization for all our members.  To that end, over the next few months, we are making our website more user friendly!

Your organization's main contact and some staff who regularly attend TTIA events, will have profile pages on our website, with unique logins and passwords.  You will be able to update your own information and keep us updated on changes to your organization more easily. Any staff of a member organization can create their own profile page on, too.  That way, each staff member will have their own username & password.


In an effort to make registering for our events more streamlined, beginning in January 2012, ALL TTIA event registrations will be completed online at 

When you are logged into and you are registering for a TTIA event, your data is automatically inserted into the correct fields on the registration form, making registering for events so much easier!  You will still be able to select the credit card or bill me options.


Over the next month, TTIA staff will be working diligently to ensure all our members' profile pages are set up on our website. We may be contacting you for additional information as we go through this process.  


If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact Jennifer Baker or Janice Langlinais at 512-328-8842 or via email at or
