President's Message: March 2018

Hello PA-TSA! I hope that all of you enjoyed your Regional Conference and attained your hopes for success. But with conclusion of the Regional Conference season comes the start of a new chapter: the State Conference season.


As we prepare for the 40th Annual State Conference, it is essential to remember to where this organization started from, and the heights we have reached—but, most importantly, we must envision the destinations we can reach. PA-TSA started with a mere four chapters, and has grown to be one of the largest state delegations in the nation, earning the second-most top tens at the most recent National Conference. As members of this organization, we are obligated to perpetuate this organization’s astounding growth. PA-TSA’s future is in our hands, and I accordingly challenge all of you to ascend to your greatest potential.


Recently, the State Officer Team began a new polling initiative on Every week, the SOT will feature a new poll on the homepage of the website. With the data obtained from these polls, the SOT hopes to gain a better understanding of what the membership seeks; we moreover will develop our projects and proposals based on polling data. Of course, the results of a poll are not guaranteed to occur, but the SOT will nonetheless make an advancement in that direction.
