Naming the keynote lecture after Mark is TACME’s way of honoring Mark Gregg for his work as a co-founder and long-time contributor to the organizational well-being of TACME. His vision, tireless efforts and perseverance created the foundation for the strong, well-recognized State professional organization that TACME is today. Mark served as the initial president of TACME in 1996-1997. He put the structure of the organization in place including the articles of incorporation, the bylaws and the board positions/duties. He was a true advocate for the initial formation and ongoing future of the organization. An example of the way Mark quietly contributed and showed genuine concern for the integrity of TACME was by congratulating each new president and asking an immediate question – “who will you mentor to be the next president of TACME?” Mark’s skill with technology helped formulate the basis of a web-presence, as well as the online registration capability today by serving as the TACME webmaster for a number of years.
Mark’s tireless service behind the scenes as an advocate and mentor to many CME professionals through the years has helped put in place the foundation we all share as TACME members today.
Mark was recognized during the Texas CME Conference on June 14, 2012 with the Mark Gregg Inaugural Distinguished Lecture. The lecture is an annual recognition of Mark’s generosity and contributions.
