Collision repair: You don't
know what you don't know

S.17 Collision and Corrosion
Control Study Group
Thursday, September
17 | 11:45-12:45 PM
The tsunami wave of technology that is enveloping
the world of trucking has
prompted collision specialists
to replace tried and true
repair methods with more
advanced alternatives.
Advanced driver safety
systems, sensor-based
telematics, and other technology advancements can

make even the simplest
fender bender a nightmare of
unanticipated consequences.
As a result, fleet managers
are in the very real position
of not knowing what they
don't know when it comes
to modern collision repair.
Attend this session and learn
from our expert panel what
you need to know about
the pitfalls of not properly
following collision repair procedures on today's advanced
commercial vehicles.

Town Meeting & Fleet Operators' Forum
Wednesday, September 16 | 10-11 AM
TMC's best-attended event is always its Town Meeting and Fleet Operators'
Forum. TMC's Town Meeting provides an opportunity for the Council to
present members and attendees with information about what's happening
within TMC. Reports are provided regarding Council membership, meetings,
and exhibits, as well as TMC Recommended Practices, information reports,
technical policy advisories, and products. Additionally, a federal regulatory
report is provided by the head of ATA's Engineering Department. TMC's Fleet Operators' Forum
immediately follows the Town Meeting. At the Fleet Operators' Forum, fleet attendees bring
up equipment problems that they have been unable to resolve successfully with their product
manufacturer or supplier. An update is given later during the week at TMC's Fleet Operators'
Forum Wrap-up. If you have an issue you wish raised, please contact TMC at 703-838-1763.
Shop Talk
Thursday, September 17 | 3:15-4:45 PM
Shop Talk ranks consistently as the most popular feature at TMC general meetings. Shop Talk, open to all registered attendees, offers a unique chance to learn and
share the tricks of the trade from the industry's best experts. At this session, two veteran fleet managers will lead what will be a spirited discussion on what works or does not
work in vehicle maintenance. Our Shop Talk session also features the wrap-up to our
Fleet Operator's Forum at which resolutions to fleet concerns raised are presented.
