In 2017 TMA UK launched a self-administering regional board of directors dedicated to promoting the quality networking and thought leadership that is the cornerstone of TMA UK.

 

We now have directors with responsibility for regions in East Midlands, West Midlands, Scotland, North East, Thames Valley, Yorkshire, Manchester & North West, South East Counties and London.

 

We are always on the lookout for quality people to fill places on boards in other cities across the UK.   If you are interested in creating a board or sponsoring a board please contact our president Andrew Pepper or Nyree Magill on 0844 804 0116.
