Each year, TCA holds a reception to honor a legislator with the Charlie Devlin Award for Excellence for his/her exemplary work in the behavioral health field. This year's reception will be held virtually on Thursday, Sept. 15 from 4-5:30pm ET, when Rep. David Trone of Maryland's 6th District will receive the Charlie Devlin Award for Excellence.
TCA presents a host of SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES to help make this event a continued success. Sponsors are featured in program material, highlighted during the reception, and can also be featured in TCA weekly newsletters for some time afterward. We thank all of our generous sponsors.
