New Service Provider Biweekly Feature

In an effort to support the businesses of our service provider members, we will begin sending a twice monthly email featuring three companies. Check your email on 1/13 for the first edition! This structured email opportunity is available to all service providers and does not count toward the yearly email allowance under the new solicitation guidance.

NOTE: Service provider members are required to complete the email solicitation policy acknowledgement before participating in the biweekly email.


Program Business Study: Input Needed

The TMPAA will be conducting the 9th State of Program Business Study this year, the results of which will be shared at the Summit in October. Along with metrics that show changes in the size and scope of the program industry segment, each study collects information on emerging issues in the space to help inform your business strategy.

Please consider recommending an aspect of program business you would like to see explored in the 2023 study.
