Dear Trucking Industry Professional:
ATA's Technology & Maintenance Council (TMC) invites you to join us for our
2023 Fall Meeting, Sept. 17-21, at the Huntington Convention Center in Cleveland,
Ohio. 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 2023 Fall Meeting - Excellence in Maintenance for
Quality Control - 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 18th annual National Technician
Skills Competitions September 17-19. The event - TMCSuperTech 2023 - 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
Technician & Educator Committee (TEC), TMCSuperTech 2023 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 eighth Student Technician Skills Competition, TMCFutureTech 2023. All
meeting attendees are welcome to observe the competitions.
The Council is also offering the TEC Technician Training Fair. The Fair will take place
