Transition of TRA Chairmanship

Having the opportunity to serve as the Chairman of the board for TRA these past two years has truly been an honor and a great experience.  This opportunity has allowed me to serve beside the extraordinary staff at TRA as well as leadership of the top retailers in the state.  It’s been very educational, informative and fulfilling being able to contribute to this organization at a higher level.  This organization has always been a good resource for me personally, but more especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.  Staff have worked closely together with state and local governmental agencies to ensure that the most up-to-date information is being shared with membership.  I look forward to supporting and contributing to the TRA’s board of directors in a new capacity.

Thank you for the honor to serve as your chairwoman for the 2020 – 2021 term.  We are all experiencing an unanticipated chapter in our lives and the COVID-19 pandemic has had a profound impact on the retail sector and our consumers.  The Texas Retailers Association’s leadership and staff will continue to meet current and future challenges and we will collaborate with you to be the key resource for you and to offer best practices, innovative responses and new ideas that are emerging in the retail sector.  I am sincerely grateful to be part of an organization that quickly took action to adjust to the new realties of working through the COVID-19 crisis.
