2-23-2022 No Wednesday meeting this week


Sad to announce the passing of Jim Sylvis. Past President of TSAI for many years, he kept us going through many changes in the business, and is missed very much.


We have VERY exciting News! Beginning March 15th, TSAI Around Town will

be at The Opry Backstage Grill at The Inn at Opryland EVERY TUESDAY! 6-8 pm.

This is a premier location in Nashville and a fantastic opportunity. It will mostly

be hosted by J Edwards, with Russ Roberts, Ken Mellons, Richard Trest and

Steve Stern rotating in, and featuring the best.

Please support these events, enjoy, and take advantage of the pitching and

networking available.
