Where Program Business Gets Done

December 2022


Notable Year Sets Tone for 2023

The TMPAA Team wishes you a healthy & prosperous holiday season.

Two successful in-person events and more than 100 new memberships have made 2022 a standout year for Target Markets. It's a great time to be a part of the only association dedicated to Program Business.

We look forward to another active year in 2023. The 7th State of Program Business Study will be conducted following the Mid-Year Meeting and is again anticipated to show strong growth in this industry segment. 


Attendee Solicitation Policy Finalized 

Following the Summit, the Association received significant feedback regarding the volume of email solicitations in the weeks prior to and after the event. To address these concerns, and maintain the ability for service provider members to describe their solution/product to a receptive audience, the Advisory Board has established solicitation guidelines for communicating with potential business partners in the group. Please review the policy here. Service Provider members are required to complete the acknowledgement survey.

Beginning in January, we will highlight service provider members in a structured bi-weekly email from the Association. Service providers can sign up for this opportunity by completing a short form available in the link below.
