More than 250 TI Alumni Association members gathered at the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center in downtown Dallas’ Arts District on May 9 for the association’s second annual meeting. The spacious performing arts center provided an elegant backdrop for the occasion, and retirees enjoyed visiting with one another while munching on cookies and sipping punch. A soothing, live soundtrack for the gathering was provided by a talented sax-and-keyboard duo. “This was such a marvelous setting for our annual meeting,” said Max Post, president of the TIAA. “Many of our members hadn’t had the opportunity to tour the Meyerson before, so this was really an enjoyable occasion for them. Plus, it’s always nice for everyone to be able to get together with friends they haven’t seen in quite some time.” Part of the meeting’s enjoyment came from guided tours of the magnificent Meyerson before the meeting began. The tours were conducted by Docents, who are experienced tour guides that volunteer at the symphony center. Retirees were treated to a rare behind-the-scenes view of the workings of the world-class Symphony Hall. Texas Instruments is a major corporate sponsor of the Dallas Symphony, which performs at the Meyerson.
