President's Message

TCA President Pamela Thielke

2019 - 2020 President

Pamela Thielke
Texas Department of Criminal Justice — Parole Division

Happy New Year Y’all! 2020 looks to be bright and beautiful and full of new challenges and accomplishments in the field of corrections.

Our November Specialized Populations conference was very successful with a significant increase in attendance. Our Round Rock location was a hit and we are currently determining next years site that will offer an outstanding venue.

Our summer conference program committee, chaired by Bobby Lumpkin, is working hard at establishing the Summer Conference schedule. Please feel free to reach out to Mr. Lumpkin or any of our Board Members with speaker recommendations as we will work to develop the next outstanding agenda.

As we start our new year, I want to remind all that nominations for the Texas Corrections Association Awards are coming due. February 1, 2020, is our last day to accept nominations for these outstanding categories that recognize the actions of so many in various aspects of the Criminal Justice field. Please use the attached link to learn more information about each as well as obtain the nomination form. Additionally, the applications for the Susan Cranford Scholarship are also available on the website. This is a great opportunity for those seeking a degree in Criminal Justice. Please see the website for details and spread the word of the availability of both the scholarships and the opportunity recognize some of our outstanding peers in the field.

The TCA Board looks forward to your continued involvement in our organization and appreciates your involvement and support.
