The holidays would be a great time to complete your scholarship application

Well, the holidays are here and although they are hectic, they offer an opportunity to work on the TGA Scholarship application.

As a reminder, the Academic Scholarship application is due at the end of January and the Technical School application is due the end of February.

Those seen a long time off, but they will be here sooner than you imagine. With the requirements for recommendation letter and your personal letter, the time is much shorter than it seems.

There is not an issue with having the application in before the deadline, only if it is after.

Good luck and get that application done and submitted.

The 2016 Transmission Roundtable was a phenomenal success

dscn6521The Transmission Roundtable is in the books and was an amazing success.

The attendance continued to be excellent, enough, in fact, to preclude the use of an actual round table configuration. Opening reception at the Mexican Manhattan, which gave the attendees a good taste of Tex-Mex in the San Antonio tradition; a day and a half of great presentations and networking and a great opportunity to talk about common concerns.

The agenda can be found here.

Photos of the roundtable can be found here.

Thursday Presentations can be found here, and
