Hello TRA Members!


Registration for the 2021 Roundup at Kalahari Resorts Texas is open! This year’s event is sure to delight everyone and when you register by June 1, you will save with the incentive pricing.

Roundup begins Monday evening with two new social events – the first ever Roundup Rental Olympics and Welcome Reception. Are you able to set up tables and chairs in the blink of an eye? Can you change into your PPE faster than Clark Kent can change into Superman in a phone booth? If so, start training for your Olympic debut. Not an Olympian? Join us to cheer on the Olympians as they will earn extra points for the loudest cheering squad! This exciting competition wraps up during the Welcome Reception with the crowning of our Olympic champion. Bring your entire family to the Kalahari Event Barn for an evening of fun.

Fellow Texan and NBA Hall of Famer, Sidney Moncrief, kicks off our educational sessions Tuesday morning with his inspiring leadership message. Sidney will share personal stories and anecdotes that you can apply for your personal development and growth of your powerhouse team.

And the education does not stop there. Grab a seat in the meeting room to learn how to save money and how to make money. First up is Ashley Cuttino, from Olgetree Deakins, ARA’s human resource assistance partner. Ashley’s presentation on Texas-specific employee and safety handbooks is one you cannot afford to miss. Next up is Nikki Nuckols from Doodle Dog Creative in Dallas. Nikki will share tips how to grow your business with an overall branding presence, especially when utilizing the various social media sites.

As always, we hope to see you on the exhibit floor and at the lunch, vendor reception, and the closing dinner. Do not forget your wallets for the Silent and Live Auctions. We will have some unique and exciting items available this year.                  

Come a day early or stay a day late, but whatever you do, do not miss this year’s stellar Roundup!
