Dear TPS Members,
Over the years, the Texas Pediatric Society has become part of “my family” which is why this is a tough message to send. I would like to inform you that I will be retiring effective January 31, 2022. The years I have spent with TPS have been some of the most rewarding of my career. Being a part of the TPS and its honorable mission to improve the lives of children has enriched my life not only professionally but personally.
Since joining the TPS in 2014, the Society has grown and flourished in so many ways –membership now topping over 4700; an increased operating budget to support our work; ongoing grant projects; quality improvement and maintenance of certification programs; exceptional CME; increased partnerships and collaborations; high profile media presence; solid coalitions and partnerships; strong advocacy work; and a remarkable staff that has doubled in size. These accomplishments are possible because I am fortunate to work with the most dedicated, caring, and engaged members who live the mission of the society every day. I am especially proud of our committed and talented staff; they have developed into a team that continues to excel beyond my expectations.
Working for you has been an honor and a privilege that I will always hold dear. I value the friendships I have gained and hope that they will last well into the future. While I look forward to enjoying my retirement, I will miss working with you and will forever remember the joys and successes that we experienced together over the past years.
Membership is the heart and soul of TPS, and I am excited about TPS’ future and its continued success. I will work to ensure a smooth transition to my successor. Thank you for the opportunity to have been a part of the TPS family. I will miss you all.
Tricia Hall, CAE, CMP
