Membership Committee

The TIDA Membership Committee exists to review and approve applications for membership from attorneys, trucking professionals, insurance professionals and vendors who wish to become TIDA members. Based upon previously approved standards reflected in the bylaws, applications are diligently evaluated to ascertain the following: current and substantial involvement in the active practice of defending trucking companies (or their affiliates); regular and consistent involvement in claims management, risk management or other aspects of defending claims against the trucking industry and vendors or consultant businesses that provide personal injury, property damage or subrogation services to support the trucking industry.

We, the members of the Membership Committee, firmly believe that the interests of the trucking industry and TIDA members are well represented and well-served by the opportunities to network, share knowledge and resources in defense of the trucking industry in a safe, industry- friendly forum..
