A Message from TPS Executive Director

Dear TPS Members,
As the coronavirus pandemic evolves, we want to ensure the safety of our members, staff, and the community at large. We make updates to the TPS website daily in order to keep you informed about COVID-19 resources and the status of our upcoming events.  Our goal is to keep you informed during this very challenging and unpredictable time.

Website for Resources
You may access current postings and updated messages and resources regarding COVID-19 here.We are committed to following all  recommendations from the CDC and state and local public health departments and will be monitoring accordingly. TPS staff is on a daily call with DSHS and will continue to provide updates via our website.

TPS Annual Leadership Planning Summit (ALPS)
The TPS ALPS scheduled for April 18-19 at the Westin Riverwalk Hotel in San Antonio will now be hosted virtually. We will reformat our committee meetings to a virtual platform on Saturday, April 18th. This is the day originally scheduled for all committee meetings, so please continue to hold that date. Once the logistics are in place for the virtual meetings, members will receive an email about how to participate. The calendar for committee meetings will remain the same, which you can access here.

TPS Events
We are working on managing, reformatting, or rescheduling other TPS events as needed and will send out notices as those plans unfold. Please continue to watch for emails from TPS for updates.

TPS Office Staff
Starting this week, TPS staff is working from home. It is business as usual, and you can reach us by email or by phone anytime during the day.  We remain dedicated to serving our members and can do so safely by tele-commuting.  We do ask for your patience when returning emails and phone calls.

TPS President Dr. Tammy Camp and I are in touch daily, and we will continue to keep our members updated on TPS activities, including the ever-changing status of COVID-19.

As we all navigate this very difficult and challenging situation, please be safe and keep your families safe. Thank you for all you are doing for children, families and communities. The TPS team will continue to stay in touch.

Thank you,

Tricia Hall, CAE, CMP
