New TIA president David Martin took the gavel from outgoing president Tom Formanek, expressing his appreciation for Formanek and confidence in the current state of the association, saying he was “honored to be able to step into the role of president and to take the lead of an organization that’s in such good shape.” Martin continued, “For us to be able to continue moving forward with our extensive initiatives with government affairs, training, and education. These are our core values and we want to expand and continue their growth.”

In addition to the annual changing of the guard, members approved a resolution affirming TIA’s stance on changes in the Fair Labor Standards Act. In the resolution, TIA, which recently surpassed 10,000 members, urges lawmakers to carefully weigh the effects on employers as they consider changes that impact overtime pay for salaried employees. Treasurer Mike Wolfe provided members with an overview of TIA finances, expressing his confidence that the association is on strong financial ground.
