2020 TIA Member Resources, Programs & Initiatives

Neil Humphrey | Transportation Intermediaries Association

TIA’S 2021 MEMBERSHIP Renewal period is now open! On behalf of TIA Staff, we thank you for your continued support of TIA and appreciate your commitment and dedication to the 3PL industry—especially during these unprecedented and uncertain times we find ourselves in as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. We look forward to continuing to serve you in the coming year and are excited about the new programs and services we have rolled out to TIA Members this year.

Over the past few months, we have been working hard to create a more user-friendly interface on the TIA website—including an overhaul of our education course pages and the launch of our Virtual Lunch & Learn page. We have launched a dedicated calendar, featuring all upcoming TIA webinars and events in one seamless location. Additionally, in honor of October being Cybersecurity Awareness Month, we also launched a cybersecurity awareness page that is full of resources, tips, and articles that can help prevent and resolve data security and data privacy issues that may arise.

As TIA Members, you know firsthand the value included in your membership—access to model contracts and frameworks; a voice on Capitol Hill; members-only webinars; a robust member resource library; discounted registrations for trainings and events; and more. Now, we’re excited to offer you the chance to be an ambassador for the association with the TIA Member Referral Program. This new program offers current TIA Members a chance to win great prizes—gift cards, TIA-branded apparel, and comped registrations to TIA events—for referring potential new members to TIA.

The Member Referral Program will help TIA strengthen the 3PL network by ensuring 3PLs everywhere have access to TIA resources. If you know a 3PL that is eligible for membership with TIA, we want to know! With each referral, members are entered into a raffle for various prizes each month. Referrals converted to new members will also be entered into a grand prize raffle at the end of the year. To learn more or begin referring potential new members, visit tianet.org/member-referrals.

We would also like to thank our members for their continued support of the TIA Delivers Podcast. Launched last fall, the podcast has covered insightful topics from economics and commission structures to leadership and sales, expanding TIA Member resources and adding new and relevant content for members each month. We also launched the members-only Advocacy Insights Podcast in the Spring, with TIA’s Chris Burroughs, Vice President of Government Affairs, providing monthly updates on the latest developments from Capitol Hill. Both podcasts from TIA can be found on the TIA website as well as Soundcloud, Apple Podcasts and Spotify.

If you or a team member is interested in being featured on an upcoming episode, or have an issue or topic that you would like to hear more about, please contact us at communications@tianet.org. For podcast sponsorship opportunities, please contact Alex Hammond at ahammond@naylor.com.
