United We Stand

Nov 13th, 2015 | By | Category: Geri Roskopf's Blog

Not Another Meeting!

Oct 30th, 2015 | By | Category: Geri Roskopf's Blog

What Does It Take?

Oct 23rd, 2015 | By | Category: Geri Roskopf's Blog

I’m sure by now you’ve been notified to prepare for the big shift — effective October 1 — that will change the way fraudulent transaction liability is assigned. The change is an attempt to reduce fraud through the use of chip-embedded credit and debit cards […]

There’s a Museum for Tow Trucks?

Last week my husband and I went to Chattanooga for some TRAA meetings, to attend the Tennessee Tow Show and to participate in all the activities happening at the International Towing & Recovery Hall of Fame and Museum. When I tell people who are not […]

I’ve Got Your Back
