TBA members: Please note we are moving to our new location this week. We welcome any members to come by and see the new office beginning this Thursday. Our new location is 2600 Centennial Place in the Regional Center Office Park. Also as we settle into our new home, the TBA is also 'on the move' with a new database management system called MemberZone - which will be live over the next week. Please note that the current website and calendar of events will go down for about 24 hours as we change sites. Once we are back up and running it will take staff an extra week or so to touch base with members to assure we are able to contact you through our new email system. Thank you in advance for your patience during our switch over
Please remember that we offer many sponsorship opportunities for our events and meetings through out the year. Currently we are looking for 2016 Hard Hat Happy SponsorsClick here to view our complete marketing and sponsorship packages
