Neil Humphrey | TRANSPORTATION INTERMEDIARIES ASSOCIATION
AS JUNE IS Membership Appreciation Month, 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 found ourselves in as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. This month is a time to recognize the out-sized—and often under-appreciated—role of the logistics industry within the greater transportation ecosystem. TIA’s month-long campaign highlighting the logistics industry culminates in the celebration of the third Annual National Logistics Day on June 28, 2021—an annual day to recognize and appreciate the importance of the logistics industry in the global and our national economies.
Throughout the month of June, TIA will be sharing member testimonials, information, facts, and figures across social media highlighting the important role played by the logistics industry and TIA’s 1,600+ member companies. We encourage everyone to like and share these posts with your networks, being sure to use the dedicated hashtags #3PLProud and #NationalLogisticsDay!
In addition, to celebrate our members and everything they do, we are excited to announce two upcoming promotions which we think you’re really going to like.
The first of these will be a series of raffles brought to you by TIA. Winners of these raffles will receive complimentary registration for our New Employee Orientation online course as well as the opportunity for three groups of TIA Members to meet directly with TIA’s Executive Committee and leadership team. This will help to spotlight member’s issues or concerns they may have about the industry or association. Lastly, the grand prize winner will receive complimentary registration to TIA’s 3PLXTEND Xperience, taking place October 21-22 in San Antonio. These three unique offers are opportunities you do not want to miss!
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 courses, trainings and events, and more. This past fall we launched the TIA Member Referral Program. This 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/.
