Our TLA 2018-2019 President-Elect has passed away.

I’m very sorry to announce that Heather Lanier (pictured on the right at our April 2018 conference in Chattanooga) who was to be our incoming TLA President has passed away.

Please visit and contribute to the gofundme page https://www.gofundme.com/v6sc6-helping-heather to assist her family with any expenses.

In lieu of flowers, her family asked for donations to Beesley Animal Foundation, https://www.facebook.com/beesleyfoundation/ in her honor.
