A Committee currently exists to address each of the following specific areas:
Established each winter for initial planning of the TMA (UK) conference which is the key presentation of the year held in the following Autumn.
Responsible for determining membership benefits, a charging strategy, on-going membership drives and communication.

There are currently 9 TMA (UK) regions across the UK: London, Wales & South West, East Midlands, West Midlands, Southampton, Manchester, Newcastle, Brighton & Gatwick and Reading.
Each is operated by a regional co-ordinator who is responsible for sourcing hosts and speakers for 2-4 events per annum. Typically events take the form of a presentation speaker, or panel, on a diverse range of subjects of interest to the turnaround community. Each event typically has 40-50 attendees. The regional co-ordinators have the benefit of speaking to this captive audience in their capacity as representatives of the TMA. They also have the added benefit of sending out invitations using their company logo to the TMA database of contacts.
Regional Coordinators qualify for significantly discounted sponsorship rates once established as a thank you for your time involved.
