Tobin Talk: January 4, 2019

Happy New Year!

THCA celebrated the holidays together at Casa Rosa, the gallery of Luis Lopez. We sang carols around the piano and shared delicious food and friendship, as well as enjoyed a visit from Congressman Lloyd Doggett. Be sure to check out the photos on the THCA Facebook page.

Our Annual Meeting is coming up in just a few weeks. The Nominating Committee has compiled the list of nominees for the 2019 Board election which will take place at this meeting. You can view the nominee bios here.  You must be current on your THCA Membership to vote for the Board, so please make sure you have renewed before then.

Beginning in January, the City of San Antonio is expanding the Fee Waiver program for qualified Owner Occupied, Legacy Businesses, and Historic Rehabilitation projects. Please click on the flyer at the bottom of the newsletter for more details.

We are looking forward to seeing you at our Annual Meeting on Thursday, January 24 at Eco Centro at 6:00PM.
