Newly installed Texas Jewelers Association (TJA) President Jeanne Roe of Roberts Jewelers in Del Rio, TX is excited about serving her 2015-2017 term, and looking forward to both the challenges and rewards that come with running the association. When asked about what goals she hoped to accomplish during her two-year term, Roe stated: “We’ve spent the last year and a half re-establishing a firm foundation for the Texas Jewelers Association. Now that our foundation is in place, it’s time for us to focus on increasing our outreach to members, working more closely with our vendor associates, and expanding our outreach to potential members through events such as our annual convention, the TJA/JCK Las Vegas Meet & Greet, and the Meet & Greet we will be doing for the first time at the AGTA Show in Tucson.”
