The meeting is set for Oct. 27 from 3 to 3:30 p.m, while the Tire Industry Honors program is set for Nov. 2 from noon to 1 p.m.
Both events are being held on Zoom, since the SEMA Show in Las Vegas has been shelved because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Registration for the annual membership meeting is open only to TIA members in current good standing. Registration for the Tire Industry Honors program is open to the entire industry. There is no charge for either event, but registration is required.
The membership meeting is the chance to meet the association's elected leadership and participate in the installation of incoming president Dan Nothdurft of Tires Tires Tires in Sioux City, Iowa.
The meeting includes a financial review, introduction of new board members and recognition of those leaving the board. Members will have the chance to review and vote on resolutions important to the membership and discuss any new business.
The Tire Industry Honors is a "scaled- down version" of the live program that recognizes some of the tire industry's most influential leaders.
Mr. Northdurft and outgoing TIA President Brian Rigney, president of Dill Air Controls Products in Oxford, N.C., will provide remarks, and there will be a legislative review by TIA CEO Roy Littlefield and TIA Director of Government Affairs Roy Littlefield IV.
In addition, Tire Business will announce the winner of the Tire Dealer Humanitarian Award, while the other two trade publications will be represented in the program and Top Shop Award.
TIA will present the State Executive Legislative Award and Michelin North America will announce the winners of the 2020 Michelin/TIA college scholarships.
