Dear Colleagues,

After careful consideration, the TRTA Workshop for East TN in Knoxville for Monday, March 23, 2020, is CANCELLED.  We wish to act responsibly with the wellbeing of our members of primary concern. There were just too many factors to consider such as a declaration of emergency by both the President and the Governor to move forward with the meeting as originally planned.  Please notify those of your membership who were planning to attend.

I will send additional information at a later date as I wanted to give you as much advance notice as possible.

Thank you for all you do for the Association,


Donna Cotner
