2009 Tristate Convention - Letter from the President

Welcome to the Tri-State Independent Theatre Association’s Annual Convention.

A big "THANK YOU" to all of our sponsors!
Without their support we would not be able to have such a wonderful convention.

I want to start out by welcoming everyone to our 2009 convention. Each of you is a very important part of this organization. T.S.I.T.A. is so lucky to be able to have such a diverse representation of cinema operators and cinema vendors together for this year’s convention.

I want to thank all of the board members and committee members for working so hard in putting together this year’s convention. I also want to recognize our next T.S.I.T.A President – Chris Hopkins. Chris has done a remarkable job serving as Vice President and he will be a "TERRIFIC" President.

As many of you know – our previous President David Lewis passed away last year. David was a remarkable person who was loved by everyone in this organization and he represented us well. David will always have a special place here at this convention. In his honor I would like to announce that T.S.I.T.A. will be setting up a College Scholarship Fund. Details on the David Lewis Scholarship Fund will be available during the convention and will also be posted online.

Our website www.tristatetheatreconvention.com continues to be a great success. Hopefully many of you registered online this year and will continue to visit the site for future updates. In May we will be post pictures of the 2009 convention for everyone to view.

Again, I hope that each of you will have a great time at this year’s convention. I have truly felt blessed these past two years by being able to represent you - the very finest in Cinema entertainment!

Please enjoy your time in Tunica and be sure to invite others to attend the 2010 convention.


Donald A. Terry
President, T.S.I.T.A.
