A New Experience for a New Member: Taking on the TLPA Annual Convention

No one wants to feel like the new kid. Not in elementary school, and not at a professional conference. But if you’re planning to make TLPA’s 99th Annual Convention & Trade Show your first meeting, going in with an open mind and a smile will make all of the difference. Just ask Roman Genov.

Roman is a relatively new member of TLPA. He and his brother run a transportation company in Connecticut, which provides local and long distance livery rides, as well as non-emergency medical transportation services. They joined TLPA earlier this year.

Roman didn’t hesitate to get involved with the organization. He attended our Spring Conference & Expo in Palm Springs and our Legislative Day in Washington, D.C. Both, he says, were full of friendly faces and useful information.

“I loved it. I met a lot of new people. The presentations were on different topics and were useful, and I took a lot of notes. Everyone was very friendly and willing to help,” he said.

TLPA will host its 99th Annual Convention & Trade Show at the Hyatt Regency Denver / Colorado Convention Center from October 8-12, and it will be Roman’s first Annual Convention.

“I'm really looking forward to being there,” he said. “I hope to meet new vendors providing dispatch solutions, and other hi-tech innovations. Also, I hope to hear new thoughts and ideas from speakers.”

The convention will be a chance for members, new and seasoned, from all over the country to gather and exchange ideas on how to better their businesses and their respective industries.

If you’re a new member or haven’t been to a meeting before, don’t fret. Roman – and hundreds of your peers — will be there to welcome you. For new members preregistering for your first TLPA Annual Convention & Trade Show, there also will be our new member welcome, orientation and lunch, where you’ll get to meet Roman. Just keep in mind enthusiasm is the key to a successful conference, regardless of how long you’ve been involved in TLPA.

Register now for the TLPA Annual Convention & Trade Show.
