TBACE Membership Application 2018-2019

Membership Renewals:

It's time once again to renew your memberships. Your current memberships will expire on September 30th. Please complete the application and return it with your $15.00 fee to renew for Fiscal Year 2019.

Dear TBACE Colleagues: 

We are inviting members in good standing to serve on the TBACE Board of Directors for the upcoming 2018 - 2020 term.  All four positions on the Board are going to be open, so if you've been thinking, "Hmmm, that serving on the Board thing seems pretty cool, maybe I've got something to offer", now is the time!  The next TBACE meeting is 10/2/18 and we need our nominees in place.

Why serve on the Board?  Because there are many benefits, including:  professional credibility, an improved understanding of the importance of our profession, an experience that enriches your resume, excellent networking opportunities, and of course, working with other code enforcement professionals!  The members of TBACE are some of the finest people you could ever hope to meet.

We know you come to the meetings and benefit from the educational programs.  Now, it's time to share your vast knowledge, energy, skills, "take your turn", and GIVE BACK to the organization by serving on the TBACE Board of Directors.

Still on the fence?  Want to make sure it's really a good fit for you?  Just contact me (or any current Board member) and we'll gladly answer your questions.  Looking forward to hearing from you and Thank you in advance for doing your part to help!

Next Meeting:

TBACE meetings are held the first Tuesday of even-numbered months; location varies.  We are still looking for locations for our TBACE meetings beginning February 2017. Please consider having your municipality host one of these meetings. If the cost of a light lunch is an issue for your agency TBACE can help with the cost. 

WHEN:   October 2, 2018 at Noon




***REMINDER:  Please remember that only paid members will receive Continuing Education Units for attending the meetings.  We have two sign in sheets at the meetings.  If you are not listed on the sign in sheet for paid members be sure to check with our treasurer to make sure your dues are current.  The second sign in sheet will be for guests and unpaid members.  ***
