Dear Trucking Industry Professional:
As TMC Executive Director, I invite you to attend ATA's Technology & Maintenance
Council's 2019 Fall Meeting, Sept. 15-19, at the Raleigh Convention Center in Raleigh,
N.C. Once again, TMC's Fall Meeting features a strong slate of educational sessions for
equipment professionals, as well as a host of activity geared for truck technicians.
The theme of TMC's 2019 Fall Meeting - New Prospects for Technical Achievement
- centers around finding answers to the environmental, economic, cybersecurity and
regulatory challenges that face our industry. Many of our educational sessions will
address these topics, as explained in our fall meeting promotion.
In addition, TMC is holding North America's 15th annual National Technician
Skills Competitions September 15-17. The event - TMCSuperTech 2019 - will
feature three separate competitions - our traditional (heavy-duty) track, trailer track,
and light/medium vehicle track. The event showcases our industry's commercial
vehicle technicians, who will compete for top honors and valuable prizes as they
demonstrate their diagnostic abilities through a series of skills stations. Organized by
TMC's Professional Technician Development Committee (PTDC), TMCSuperTech 2019
will this year start Sunday morning and conclude Monday evening. Awards will be
given to the top three technicians and skills station winners during Tuesday evening's
Awards Banquet. This year also features our sixth Student Technician Skills Competition,
TMCFutureTech 2019, sponsored by the TechForce Foundation. All meeting attendees are
welcome to observe the contests.
The Council is also offering the PTDC Technician Training Fair. The Fair is expanded
for 2019, offering 1-1/2 days of hands-on training sessions starting Tuesday, Sept. 17 and
concluding midday on Wednesday, Sept. 18. These sessions are being organized by TMC's
Professional Technician Development Committee, and will feature expanded blocks of
training on electrical and databus diagnostics, aftertreatment systems, and more. For
details, please review the material provided in our meeting brochure, found on TMC's
event website: http://tmcfall.trucking.org. For information, call (703) 838-1763.
On behalf of TMC's Board of Directors, I encourage you to take advantage of this
opportunity and join us at TMC's 2019 Fall Meeting. We look forward to seeing you in
Raleigh!
Sincerely,

Robert Braswell
TMC Executive Director
