Annual Seminar

The Annual Seminar Committee is responsible for the planning and execution of TIDA’s Annual Seminar. The committee’s goal is to plan sessions that will be timely, educational, and relevant to the professionals who have dedicated themselves to the defense of the motor carrier industry. By involving speakers and presenters from a wide cross-section of the membership and the industry, Annual Seminar attendees gain valuable perspectives and a deeper understanding of all aspects of motor carrier defense. The Annual Seminar Committee also searches for new ideas to incorporate into the event which will encourage interaction and enhance the relationships between and among the attendees, which in turn will benefit the organization and the entire motor carrier industry.
