President’s Corner

Dear Colleagues,

My time as president has gone by quickly. Our 47th Educational Conference will be here before we know it. Please be sure to register (September 6, 2019) and secure your room (September 26, 2019) before the early registration deadlines. We look forward to seeing you there.

Our Program Committee has a wonderful educational program lined up for our conference. The regular sessions begin Wednesday, October 9, 2019 at noon. This yearís sessions focus on topics such as: the new SSDIs and revised EOD, COC Standards Update, TCR Update, Soft Tissue Sarcoma, Radiation Oncology, Pathology, Breast Cancer from a Medical Oncologist view, Neuro-Oncology, Robotics Surgery in Prostate Cancer, Cervical Cancer and Follow-up. This is a great opportunity to learn, earn your continuing educational hours and network with your peers.

I want to thank the Program Committee chair, Velma Garza, and the committee for all their hard work in putting together this conference for our membership and peers. I want to also extend a special thank you to our 2018-2019 TxTRA Board. I have learned so much and appreciate your guidance and support. All of you have pulled together and made it possible to move our organization forward.

Serving as the TxTRA president has been a very humbling experience. I have been a TxTRA member since 1996 and have served on the TxTRA Board in several capacities. I have learned that all the things I take for granted in our organization happen because a very small group of members pulled together to make it so.

I invite each of you to take that first step and serve on a committee or elected position. You will get the privilege to work with a great group of people and bring fresh ideas to the table to benefit our membership and profession.
