WELCOME FROM TAPBA PRESIDENT,
CHARLES W. WHITE, III
I would like to take this opportunity to welcome each of you to the 2013 TAPBA Continuing Education Class. With your support we were able to get some key legislation passed this past year which will aid the bail industry. Your continued participation and support to myself and the Board of Directors is encouraged and appreciated. I look forward to seeing each of you in the coming year.
CHARLES W. WHITE, SR.
WELCOME FROM TAPBA VICE PRESIDENT,
I Welcome to the TAPBA classes of 2013! This is going to again be a year of many challenges, but together as a TEAM I truly believe we can overcome them. This will take a team effort from each and every one of us. Legislation is making and changing laws that concern and can cause drastic issues in the bonding industry; however the TAPBA political action committee is here to stand up in your defense. This includes educating legislators and their staff about the issues and challenges you face in your business. As a TEAM we can make a difference, but in order to do this we have got to strengthen our association membership percentage. If we are not passionate about our industry why would we even begin to expect our Legislature to be? This is OUR livelihood and WE have to believe in it! There were 1,582 agents who attended class in 2012. Of that number, only 113 are members of TAPBA (yes, that is correct-only 7%). When our chairmen volunteer their time to make your business better, they need Legislation to see that this Association is to be taken seriously. This is not going to happen when they can clearly see we are only represented by seven (7%) percent. Ladies and gentlemen, come on - let’s make this a RECORD YEAR for TAPBA. I challenge each of you today to
JOIN THE TEAM IN 2013!!!
Vice President TAPBA
