TSMSS Member Newsletter: March 2019

 


Registration is now open for the 2019 Annual Conference!  This year, we are "Advancing into the Future" with 80's themed fun!  Take advantage of the early-bird rates by registering now.

 
While you are there, you will not want to miss our Keynote Speaker, recovering attorney, Linda Swindling, JD, CSP.  She was a favorite the last time she joined us and now she wants us to "Ask Outrageously!".  The best part is that she is going to tell us the secret to getting what we really want!


Hotel for Conference

Below you will find a personalized link to receive the special TSMSS rate at our conference hotel, the Marriott RiverCenter.  You will be able to take advantage of the discounted rate for 3 days before and 3 days after our conference (depending on room availability).  You won't want to miss the opportunity to enjoy Fiesta, which is an annual tradition in San Antonio!
