Last night, I attended a dinner and auction of the Tennessee Road Builders Association Mid-Year Meeting in Nashville, Tennessee. It is always great to catch up with some many friends … many of whom I met only six months ago while presenting as a speaker at the Annual Meeting in Kauia, Hawaii. The food was okay, the dessert was better (…yes, I was smart enough to bring my wife some cake…), but the fellowship was the best. I chatted with friends like Glenn Chambers of LOJAC. I broke bread with the Wilson family of Wilson & Associates. It was a great evening.
Another highlight was the silent and live auctions to benefit the TRBA Political Action Committee. The evening brought in close to $50,000, which will help the TRBA do its legislative work on behalf of members. I donated a few items to the mix, including: (1) Lunch with a Lawyer, which included an executive lunch at The Palm and a few hours of advice; (2) a Construction Law Seminar, which included lunch for up to 20 employees on a construction issue of choice; and (3) a company profile and interview on this blog. Stay tuned for an update on the winners!
