Join our Mailing List

Donate to our Rising Star Student Scholarship Fund

Member orientations happen twice a year in February and October. They are great ice breaker events that are very casual and give you a chance to come by, hear a presentation about all that TBAEP has to offer, and ask questions. Come by and ask us where your expertise can help us most!
TBAEP maintains several channels to keep the membership up to date on latest events, news, sponsor and volunteer requests.  Follow us on Facebook and LinkedIn for updates and join the email list to get invites and reminders to our upcoming events. 
The Rising Star Student Scholarship is awarded to Students who demonstrate outstanding leadership. TBAEP gives up to two awards per semester and is currently trying to reach $100,000.00 in our fund so that it can help maintain itself through interest. Help us reach that goal!
