TMC MEETINGS
RALEIGH, N.C.
September 14-17, 2020
2020 Fall Meeting
A Virtual Event

July 1, 2020
Dear Trucking Industry Professional:
Societal changes - accelerated by technology and the ongoing COVID-19 crisis
- are transforming the way fleets specify and operate equipment in
both intentional and unintended ways. Staying ahead of the learning curve
is paramount to maintaining and securing fleet operations. That's why it is
appropriate that the theme of TMC's 2020 Fall Meeting is "Reliable Answers for
Uncertain Times."
Given the current health and economic crisis, TMC has made the decision to
forgo its traditional in-person event format and instead offer industry professionals
an all-virtual alternative which will take place September 14-17. This alternative, not
lightly taken, will allow TMC members and non-members alike the chance to
experience all the content of TMC's Fall Meeting while still being sensitive to the
health- and economic-related pressures that we all are facing in 2020.
While TMC's 2020 Fall Meeting will be held virtually, TMC will unfortuantely
not be able to hold its National Technician Skills Competitions (TMCSuperTech) or
National Student Technician Competition (TMCFutureTech) in 2020. Instead, TMC
will celebrate the first-ever National Technician Appreciation Week the week
following TMC's 2020 Fall Meeting, September 21-25. During this time, the Council
will offer special online training sessions aimed at technicians and shop supervisors
in our annual PDTC Technician Training Fair.
For details, please review the material provided in our meeting brochure, found on
TMC's event website: 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 2020 Fall Meeting. We look forward to
seeing you online!

ORLANDO, FLA.
