We are looking for seminar attendees to volunteer some of their time working at the membership table during TMCEC seminars.  We need at least 2 volunteers for each shift and one back up.  It's a great way to get involved and network with others.

If you are attending a TMCEC seminar, please consider volunteering some of your time at the TMCA Membership Table.
