Presidents Message

Welcome to the Texas Association of Hostage Negotiator’s website.  Our association was formed in 1993 by Negotiators who believed in the need for training and networking.  Almost 25 years later, I am proud to say that TAHN is going strong and excelling in the original goals set forth by our founders.  Our association is growing and evolving every day.  We have 8 Regional Vice Presidents organizing training to better serve our members throughout Texas.  From our Board of Directors, to our Regional Vice Presidents, to our Advisors, we are all here to help you with your negotiation training needs.

Please take a few minutes to explore our new website and learn who your Regional Vice President is and feel free to reach out to him or her.  Check out our training page for a list of courses offered.  We are posting all available negotiation training throughout Texas there.  Many of you have taken advantage of our blog site.  This is a great networking tool for those who have a question.  We have found that if you or your team has a question about a negotiation related topic there is always someone out there that has experienced it and can share good insight.

Please feel free to contact any Board Member or Advisor if you have training suggestions or areas of expertise you would like to share.  I am looking forward to seeing you in November at our annual conference.

John T. Vance

President, Texas Association of Hostage Negotiators
