More than 100 members and guests joined TIAA for the 2018 TIAA Annual Business Meeting. It was held on Thursday, May 17, at 1:00 pm at the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden in Dallas TX with refreshments provided by Texas Instruments. Some members elected to ride a bus to and from the Texins Activity Center to the Arboretum while free parking was available at the Arboretum for those who wished to drive. President Gary Stopani gave a brief presentation on the current state of affairs at TIAA along with some of the many events TIAA has sponsored over the year and a few upcoming major events. (His presentation can be viewed here.) Terri West, recently retired TI Senior Vice President and now with the TI Foundation, was our featured speaker. She explained the four thrusts of the TI Foundation and announced a new STEM thrust. She also presented the first-time TI Founders Community Impact Award to Max Post and members honored him with a standing ovation. Max clearly deserved this honor considering all the he spends teaching computer classes to seniors, guiding the very busy TIAA Activities Committee, and helping The Senior Source. This award was accompanied by a $10,000 check that will be given to Max's charity-of-choice.
