Note from the President

Dear Members and Guests,
Our July break was preceded by a very successful and enjoyable June Scholarship luncheon. We had 17 outstanding and well deserving scholarship recipients receiving a total award of $37,500.00. We wish them all the very best in their continuing education and for successful exploration and job placement in our exciting industry. Our guest speaker, John Vogt, had some thoughtful, excellent advice for our recipients and members as well. We thank John for his sharing his valuable insight, experience, and wisdom with us. We can all appreciate that whether you are a student or veteran member of our industry, investing in yourself to gain more knowledge and preparation in advance of a very quickly changing industry environment is not only wise but extremely necessary now more than ever. I also want to extend special thanks to Clark Freight for being the June Scholarship Luncheon Sponsor and for their generous, valuable support these many years.
We are very much looking forward to our Upcoming August 2nd, luncheon. We are pleased to have Mr. Russell H. Carter of Turner Industries join us as guest speaker. Having worked extensively on both sides of the business, Russell is able to give us some very valuable insight and perspective into the relationships and key themes that exist between sales and procurement.
Get your team registrations in as soon as possible for the upcoming ITMA Volleyball Tournament on September 9th, 2017. We are pleased to be using the Third Coast Volleyball Club again and turnout is expected to beat last year's record so enter early!
We are well past the halfway mark for the year and I thank all of you for making this year such a success. I thoroughly enjoyed our June Scholarship luncheon and your participation and generous support were most appreciated. I look forward to getting together again after our short break and will see you all soon at our upcoming August 2nd luncheon. Please book your seats early!
Very Best Regards,
Mitch Heiserman
ITMA President
