  • TMC Ballots 23 New/Revised Recommended Practices

    TMC is balloting 23 new or revised Recommended Practices (RPs) in advance of our 2019 Fall Meeting at the Raleigh Convention Center in Raleigh, N.C. Today, TMC members were sent official ballots via email if they wish to cast their votes and/or comments electronically (depending on voting rights). Members must cast their ballots/comments using the links provided by email -- voting does not take place on TMC Connect.  A link to the proposed RPs themselves however, is provided here.


    All TMC members will also receive via U.S. mail a copy of the official ballot. Members are asked to return all ballots and comments by September 9, 2019. Comments and voting results will be reviewed in public Monday, Tuesday, September 17, during TMC’s 2019 Fall Meeting at the Raleigh Convention Center in Raleigh, N.C. If you do not wish to complete the ballot online, you may return your printed ballot to TMC/ATA, 950 N. Glebe Road, Arlington, VA 22203; Attn: Jack Legler; FAX: 703-838-1701; jlegler@trucking.org If you have any questions regarding any of these proposed RPs, or the RP development process, call TMC Technical Director Jack Legler at (703) 838-7956.
  • Identified June 2019 Tasks for TMC Associates Advisory Group

    Lilo has posted a list of tasks identified during the June 2019 Associates' Advisory Group conference call.

    Please review and comment on TMC Connect.
  • Have You Been Missing TMC's Email Notifications?

    TMC regularly sends email alerts and notifications of its upcoming events, new member benefits, council updates and product announcements. But with today's concerns over cybersecurity, not everyone is able to reliably receive emails from TMC due to spam filters, internal IT policies and other cyber protections.

    Here's how you can help.

    If you know of anyone who isn't receiving TMC emails, please share this information so they can "whitelist" TMC and start receiving them. 

    "White listing" TMC will help en­sure TMC notices get delivered to your email of record. To do so, be sure you or your IT department "white list" the following domain: msgfocus.com or our dedicated IP Address 81.29.79.139 so you won't miss important notices, such as meeting and registration notices, additional benefits and more. This is a great way to in the know of what is going on in your council! 

    TMC Connect, the Council’s online collaborative work and social me­dia platform, can also provide you instant or daily digests on announcements, updates, new posts and uploads to any community site on the service. For ex­ample, if you are a member of a particular task force, you can get instant or daily digest alerts on whatever has been shared within the task force community on TMC Connect. But it only works if you "whitelist" the TMC Connect domain in your email server.  

    "White listing" TMC Connect will help en­sure TMC Connect notices get delivered to your email of record. To do so, be sure you or your IT department "white list" both of the following domains "@mail.ConnectedCommunity.org" "@ ConnectedCommunity.org" so you won't miss important notices, such as conference call times/access information, and other task force/study group activity in your community site of interest.

    You also can get up­dates whenever presentations are posted (with permission of the present­er) on TMC Connect after TMC's annual and fall meetings. This is a great way to make effective use of this valuable TMC member resource.
