The Travelers Protective Association (TPA) recently held its 133rd national convention at the Beach Cove Resort in North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Ninety-five voting delegates representing 15 divisions located throughout the country attended the three-day conference. An auction and reception raised more than $18,000 for the TPA Hearing Trust. More than $5,000 was also raised for the Homer T. Wilson Humanitarian fund, which provides emergency financial aid to TPA members. The Association’s national election was held, Joel Lederman from Colorado was elected as president and Julie Kupper from Texas was elected as vice president. Two new directors were elected to the national board of directors, including John Chmielewski from Michigan, and Edwin Miller from Pennsylvania. “This year’s convention was a wonderful celebration of our organization’s accomplishments over the past year,” said the TPA’s Chief Administrative Officer Albert M. Shoemaker, Jr. “I am overwhelmed with the amount of support and generosity we received as we strive to improve the quality of life for others, and the communities we live in.” TPA proudly thanks our corporate sponsors for their generous donations, with a special thank you to the Beach Cove Resort for hosting the spectacular event.
