TMC to introduce its new TMC Connect online community

The Technology & Maintenance Council (TMC) will introduce TMC Connect, its new member-only, online community, at the TMC 2014 Annual Meeting & Transportation Technology Exhibition taking place next week in Nashville, Tenn.

“We know the value that TMC members put on the networking and educational opportunities we provide through our conferences and programs throughout the year,” said Carl Kirk, executive director of TMC. “To build on that value, we are excited to enter into this new phase of member communications by providing TMC members an environment to connect, engage and share critical industry information and best practices in real time. 

TMC Connect will also help TMC communicate more dynamically it members by responding more quickly to their needs and receiving their input on critical industry issues, he added. “This will only strengthen our ability to implement our mission of turning industry experience into practice.” 

Through the various communities and other forums, members can conduct Study Group, Task Force and other Council committee work in a common, online collaborative platform.

They can also “gather” to continue technical discussions and share documents that will help advance TMC’s strategic priorities.
