In 2022, the Diversity & Inclusion Committee has created a new award, the DRIVE Award. Each year, the committee will solicit nominations from TIDA members and from the nominations, will select a recipient. The award is an acronym, which stands for commitment to Diversity, Respect, Inclusion, Values, and Equality.

TIDA members can nominate a fellow member for the DRIVE Award. The nominations are reviewed by the TIDA Diversity & Inclusion Committee and the recipient is announced during the Annual Seminar each year.

Congratulations to our first recipient:

Mehdi Arradizadeh, Anderson Trucking Service, Inc.
