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.


Nominations are closed for 2023. Nominations for 2024 will be open Spring 2024.

Congratulations to our first recipient:

Mehdi Arradizadeh, Anderson Trucking Service, Inc.
