LINEUP SET FOR TMA ADVOCACY RETREAT, DEC. 5-6


We have some special treats in store for the TMA 2014 Advocacy Retreat, Dec. 5-6, at Barton Creek Resort in Austin. The highlight, as always, will be the round-robin sharing of key legislative priorities from TMA and the state specialty societies. (Our priorities are outlined in Healthy Vision 2020, Second Edition.) Friday night’s dinner speaker, giving an update on the political landscape and a preview of the 2015 legislative session, is James R. Henson, PhD, director of the Texas Politics Project at The University of Texas at Austin. For our closing luncheon Saturday afternoon, we’ve secured four physician members of the Texas Legislature: Sen. Donna Campbell, MD (R-New Braunfels; and Reps. Greg Bonnen, MD (R-Friendswood); J.D. Sheffield, DO (R-Gatesville); and John Zerwas, MD (R-Simonton). Saturday morning’s agenda features breakout sessions for media training, lobby training, and social media advocacy training. Hope to see you there.
