President's Message
Greetings NTMCA Members!
So, for many of us, Election Season is behind us and now it’s the Budgeting Season. As you consider your budget (whether you prepare it or provide input), we as a Board wanted to remind everyone that one of the biggest benefits of joining NTMCA is the networking benefit. Networking strengthens your business relationships, provides you with different perspectives and ideas, helps you make connections, gives you an opportunity to help others, provides you with motivation when needed, inspires you to greater accomplishments, and even provides friendships. So, all that said, I hope joining NTMCA is included in your budget next year. We have a great group of members, which I’ve enjoyed getting to know more each month.
June Meeting

Please plan to join us at the annual NTMCA Awards Luncheon on June 21 st in North Richland Hills at the Grand Hall at NRH Centre.  Clerk of the Year awards will be announced, Alyce Deering scholarships will be awarded and NTMCA volunteers will be recognized. I hope you’ll attend and show you’re support; it’ll be a big celebration. The deadline to register is quickly approaching, however, you still have time to register.
July Meeting
As for July, our meeting will be in Decatur on July 19 th . Tim Marvel is scheduled to speak and help us better understand how we might manage our time more efficiently. 

Please join us as we host TMCA President Marie Balthrop (Wichita Falls).
