Using Technology to Increase Member Engagement & Simplify Operations

Happy Spring NTCA Members & Associates. My name is Jenni Porshakin and have taken on the role as NTCA President for 2018. Previously, I was Vice-President & Sales Compensation Chair where I focused on streamlining the operations of our organization to better serve membership.  Last year, I worked towards implementing a membership management system and new website which launched at beginning of this year.  My goal is ensure NTCA continues to flourish in it's mission while making sure our decisions are fiscally appropriate. The new system provides functionalities that improve interactions for our members at the same time reducing NTCA operational expenses.  I work with our Board of Directors, Committee Chairs and Management Company to provide you with the best membership value possible.
