“I am thrilled and honored to begin my term as president of TMA,” Mitnick said. “While we continued to face challenges due to COVID-19 last year, it has been motivating to see our members continue to pivot to a new normal and uplifting to see the positive work put forth by our volunteers. I am eager to continue the great work of the 2021 TMA global president, Matthew English, CTP, and I look forward to working alongside my peers on the TMA board.”
