Notes From Our President
Our annual meeting is just a few weeks away and I look forward to seeing you there! We have a great line-up of speakers you don’t want to miss out on. Plus, the location is convenient with the hotel sitting in the beautiful Southlake Town Square full of shops and restaurants.
We are looking for donations for the silent and live auctions. What can you donate? Proceeds from the auction benefit the scholarships for Food Science students.
If you would like to only come for Thursday night for the silent and live auctions (and networking), the cost will be $100 for that ticket.
Please share the registration packet for the annual meeting with anyone who may be interested. Please go to our website for the registration packet. See you soon!
All the best,
Janet Adams, President.

Conference Update
Annual Meeting Luncheon Speaker
Dr Alejandro Echeverry, Associate Professor of Practice Food Safety at Texas Tech University, is Texas Food Processor’s Association liaison to the Texas Tech student body. He will be speaking to us about the recruitment challenges and forecasts of Food Science majors and how our support for these students plays a pivotal role in helping this industry sustain the needs of American food security and innovation.
Call for Auction Items
As we near our annual conference we are seeking donated auction items. Our auction continues to be paramount in TFPA’s mission to fundraise. The silent and live auctions serve as the primary way we can continue to expand our cause. Not only are the donors and bidders indispensable but the items in which are donated have become intrinsic in value to our scholarship recipients. Donations big and small are needed. Guided hunts and fishing, wine, art, gift baskets serve as a lively portion of our annual auction. Please consider donating these items or contact Randy Coffman at 5Ccustom@globaltranz.com for further instruction.
