  President's Message


My how time does fly (another 'goose' reference!), and it is great to be flying with the NTMCA.  Cliché I know, but oh so true.  Since taking office as President in October 2011, we have worked through the Spring/Summer election cycles, a successful professional seminar and continued with strong attendance at our monthly meetings, which showcased the NTMCA Empowerment Series.  All these activities were aimed at providing value and benefit to our members, and I am so grateful to those who have taken this journey with me.  We have enjoyed a fabulous year with more excitement and success ahead. 


Special thanks to Diane Callahan (Highland Village) for hosting the July Meeting.  We enjoyed a presentation from Sharon Kohl as she presented the 10 Rules for Juicy Living.  We all committed to be a Plum, not a Prune!  All agreed that Sharon can come back anytime and join our flock.


In other action, the membership approved earmarking the revenue proceeds from the March professional seminar to the Special Projects Fund.  Doing so, gives the membership the ability to designate how the funds are expended in the future. 


The proposed slate of officer's for 2012-2013 was voted on as well.  Here is a list of your NTMCA Officer's for 2012-2013:


President - Alicia Richardson (Southlake)

Vice-President - Diane Cockrell (Decatur)

Treasurer - Julie Heinze (Lewisville)

Secretary - April Hill (Roanoke)

Historian - Amanda McCrory (Burleson)


I hope that you will join me as we welcome TMCA President LeAnn Gallman to our August 15 meeting in Burleson.  President Gallman will update the membership of activities at the State level.  Additionally, we will review the proposed budget for the upcoming fiscal year, and are happy to welcome back Jon Stigliano, President and Founder of Strategic Solutions Group, an Organizational Development firm, as we continue on with the NTMCA Empowerment Series.  We last heard from Jon in April as he shared with us how to maximize our productivity. Make your reservation today!


Hope to see you in Burleson on August 15th.  Honk, Honk!


Kim Sutter

NTMCA President
