Greetings TPMA Members,

On behalf of TPMA, Tennessee Chapter of the International Public Management Association, it is with amazing pleasure to serve as TPMA’s President for the 2017-2018 term. As a member of the nation’s premier public sector association, this term will be exciting and remarkably special as we continue the tradition of celebrating, promoting, rewarding, informing, learning, honoring and encouraging human resources professionals in the public sector.

I can’t think of a better time or place to be an HR professional than right now, particularly in the great state of Tennessee. IPMA, as well as TPMA have long been recognized as the “go to” resource for professional development, networking, benchmarking, collaborating, sharing best practices and supporting our community humanities.  Chapter members, you are central to the association, therefore the board and I will continue to work along, with you and on your behalf to continuously live up to the tradition and improve upon the added value of the public’s perception of the human resources profession.

We want to hear your ideas, we want you to be involved and we want to provide you with the best resources that will help you and your team to improve your roles, as the lead business partner and subject matter experts of HR for your organization. You can begin by checking out TPMA’s website The website is a starting point for you and your team members to learn more of what’s happening in the industry and who you can contact in both, the Tennessee Chapter and the International Association.

As the president, I look forward to meeting each of you, listening to you and to sharing in our successes as we move this Chapter forward without limits!

All the Best,

Felecia D. Boyd
