TMRS Receives Two Quality Texas Foundation Awards

TMRS recently received two awards at the 31st Annual Quality Texas Foundation Award Recognition Conference. The Quality Texas Foundation assists Texas organizations in their continuous improvement efforts, helping them to build sustainability in their operations, and provide them with clear steps forward by utilizing the Malcolm Baldrige Criteria for Performance Excellence.

TMRS was honored at the Pioneer and Engagement Levels for our continued commitment to performance excellence on the path toward achieving the Governor’s Texas Award for Performance Excellence. This award is based upon a very rigorous and robust process focusing on improving individuals and organizations.

Staff members Dana Brown, Colin Davidson, Tricia Solis, and Anali Alanis were on hand to receive the awards, provide a presentation on TMRS’ Quality Texas Foundation journey, and moderate a panel on the award application process.

Congratulations to our entire organization for the exceptional efforts improving quality for the benefit of our 220,000 Members, retirees, and beneficiaries!

We are excited to welcome Weston to TMRS.
