Need a new Corporate Photo?
Still using that photo with a full head of hair, the absence of wrinkles, holding your college diploma? Help is on the way.
The TMPAA has made arrangements to have a professional photographer at the October Summit to take that corporate headshot you need for print, websites, LinkedIn, and all other media that requires your image. The Association will email you the high resolution file following the event.
A two hour window will be available on Tuesday afternoon from 1:00pm to 3:00pm. Interested parties will be assigned a time slot, so no more than a few minutes away from your business meetings will be required.
Photographs are $75 dollars, a portion of which will benefit TMPAA Charities.

One Thousand Dollar Trade Show Challenge
One of our vendors will be working with the Association staff for this incentive. No one will know the vendor identity. During the Summit, the 5th program administrator or carrier attendee who visits this vendor's trade show table and asks the contest question, "How can your product or service help me get business done" will win One Thousand Dollars from the TMPAA. We will not announce or inform the winner until the general session on Wednesday.
The more vendor services you learn about, the greater your chances of walking away with One Thousand Dollars, and potentially a valuable resource for your business.
It's a win, win for everyone.
