Videos and photos from the June 20-25 stops on the Midwest leg of TRSA’s Reopening Tour can be viewed on TRSA’s Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and Twitter pages; same for followers of the social media accounts of Joseph Ricci, TRSA president and CEO; and Kevin Schwalb, TRSA’s vice president of government relations.

The TRSA posts reflect members sharing their experience in COVID-19 recovery, including vaccination strategy and employee recruiting strategies. Videos, found on the TRSA Facebook and LinkedIn pages, include interviews with member company employees describing their work experiences, providing an opportunity for companies to share the links and use these videos for recruiting.
