President's Message


Fellow members,


I hope you all had a great spring break with your families. We are now getting back into the normal rhythm of our monthly meetings. For those of you that are renewing your license, please remember the fingerprinting. I went through it a few weeks ago and it was a relatively quick process.


I hope you can all join us in our upcoming April meeting. We will be having Ms. Jennifer McEwan come over and give us a presentation on legislative and governmental issues update. Ms. McEwan is our Legislative and Governmental Affairs Director for TSPE. She has been our liaison for the past few years and has done an excellent job keeping us informed of what legislative issues are impacting our license.


Our April luncheon meeting will be on Thursday April 10, 2014 from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM, at Maggiano's Little Italy Northpark Center. Join us for an informative luncheon.
