I attended my first TMVA convention in 1988 in Galveston at the urging of one of my suppliers. I had previously thought this would not be a beneficial use of my time and money. By the time I had attended my second convention I was hooked. The education was relevant, the networking proved to be beneficial to our business and the tax advantages brought about by TMVA legislative representation had a significant positive impact on our business. Since that time, in addition to these benefits, my wife and I have enjoyed all of the friendships and great memories that have come our way by participating in and supporting TMVA. You should try it!
