Reminder: Take TMA's 2023 Advocacy Survey

In preparation for the 2024 legislative session, TMA is seeking feedback through a brief advocacy survey to ensure the needs of our members are being met. Data gathered will be used to form TMA’s policy resources and educate members of the Tennessee General Assembly.
In order to achieve statistically significant results, the survey must generate at least 300 responses. If you have not already completed the survey, we ask that you take five minutes to do so. Your honest answers are greatly appreciated and any additional comments you wish to record will receive thoughtful consideration from TMA staff.  
The last day to take the survey is Friday, Dec. 22 at 5 pm. If you have already completed the survey, we thank you for your participation.
