Susan’s Corner: A Message From The President
At our annual board meeting in January, the board voted to extend the terms of the officers and board members for another year due to Covid 19. They enthusiastically agreed and everyone on the board has been working diligently to keep the organization running smoothly!
It is hard to believe that half the year is gone and we are already getting ready for the summer trade shows! We look forward to supporting your efforts to have a great Texas holiday season. We will keep you posted on the new projects that are being worked on now and for the rest of 2022.
TJA has been busy planning our 2022 Texas Jewelers Round Up which will be something completely different than one we have ever had before! Instead of having speakers at the hotel, we will be going on our Texas Jewelers Tours to learn how our Texas members run their businesses! We are so pleased to have the Perot Museum give us a behind the scenes private tour of their Gem Collection, a seminar by Southwest Diamond Cutters on the ways to cut diamonds to achieve maximum results, and a tour through Robert Loving’s Time Delay showing us how their watchmakers accent beautiful watches! Thank you to JA for helping to sponsor our “Texas Tour Bus”, and to those who have volunteered to be a part of our educational experience. The weekend will also include wonderful events, our Design Competition, and many more!
We will also be meeting at JCK and you will be hearing about where and when as we get closer. For those of you who want to visit and compare notes, we are always available for those special questions and answers. Have a drink with us at JCK!
Here’s hoping this year continues to be great for everyone and that we can keep our hopes high for the future!
Susan Eisen, TJA President
