Directors' Messages

Starting in 1990 and through 2011 the Directors of TMI - Bob Monroe, Laurie Monroe, and Paul Rademacher - wrote a piece for each issue of the TMI Focus. 

These quarterly - and later semi-annual - messages have been grouped by year, with internal links to each separate article. Look at the summaries to see the different topics addressed. 

After 2011 messages were posted on line, rather than in a print publication.

Messages from the current Director, Nancy "Scooter" McMonagle, can be found on the web blog - From the Director's Chair.
