HOA-ATSSA Chapter Meeting UPDATE: This event will be hosted as a "VIRTUAL" meeting at 9 a.m. CT / 10 a.m. ET.

For this year’s HOA-ATSSA chapter meting, we will be raising money for the Foundation by offering sponsorships at 3 different levels, through advertisements on our zoom meeting site. All monies raised will be donated to the Foundation. Due to the short amount of time before our meeting, TraMar will accept credit card payments for donations. All contributions need to be collected in order to have advertisements posted online. The sponsorship tiers are as follows:

  • Gold - $300.00
  • Silver – $200.00
  • Bronze – $100.00

An anonymous donor will match the first 2500.00 received so that the donation will be doubled. Obviously we will take any donation above or below the tiers if you would like to donate to the Foundation.

Deadline for sponsorships is September 18th! Please try to have these paid prior to this date so we can have this all sent into ATSSA National. Thank you.

Secondly, please send in any questions or comments you would like added to the agenda. You will have an opportunity at the meeting, but it would be nice to also have them ahead of time to send to the membership.

Finally, the election process for the next term of Board of Directors has begun. Please cast your vote to elect our new members for the 2020 - 2022 Board of Directors - The deadline is Tuesday, September 8, 2020.
