Dear Friends,
Thanksgiving is upon us already! It is always good to pause and reflect on the year so far and be grateful for what we have been able to accomplish. At TMA, we are particularly grateful for you as part of our network, and for the dedicated staff we have that keep this organization moving forward. We are also thankful that we are able to do more programming in person so that we can see and connect with people invested in this work with us. Our inaugural JEDI-CCE Institute was held in person last month, and we share an update and takeaways in this newsletter. We are also thrilled that our annual award ceremony will take place in person on December 13th, and you are invited. We will also be bringing back the SCLE Conference as an in-person event this spring and would love for you to join us in planning this exciting event. 

Let us know what's on your mind, what you're interested in convening about, and how we can continue to serve you in your work fulfilling the public purposes of higher education.

In Service,

The TMA Team
