TIA Membership Reaches All-Time High
Nov. 6, 2015—For the first time in its 95-year history, the Tire Industry Association (TIA) has reached 8,000 members with the addition of The Hybrid Shop.
"The Hybrid Shop's decision to join TIA came from our desire to continually provide value to our network of dealers and their customers. TIA is a well-respected organization - as evidenced by their 8,000+ members - providing services, educational opportunities, and power in numbers that our dealer partners can use to grow their businesses. We are happy to be part of this growing organization and look forward to developing relationships within this diverse network of industry professionals," said Carey Mellor, vice president of sales for The Hybrid Shop.
"It is great to know that we have had a record number of members in TIA. We continue to deliver value to our members through our training and member benefit programs. Additionally, the industry is realizing the positive impact of our government affairs efforts. It's been a very active year on Capitol Hill and I think that some of the increase in membership can be attributed to our work on the legislative front," said Roy Littlefield, TIA executive vice president.
