Truckload Academy Live Learning Webinar Description

You have the knowledge. We have the audience. We at TCA are calling on our most trusted resource, you — our members — to be the foundation of our educational program for the 80th Annual Convention in Kissimmee, Florida, March 25-28, 2018. We need you as subject matter experts on industry best practices to submit your session ideas and help us build programming that’s worth your time. 

Before you get started on your submission, we want to help eliminate any barriers to success that you may have in navigating the process. To do this, we at TCA will be hosting a webinar on August 23 where we walk through everything you need for crafting a top-notch proposal.  

After attending this Live Learning webinar, you will be able to: 

  • Determine what/how you can contribute, based upon event details and what types of topics are being considered.
  • Compose a proposal that shows what you know, with writing tips and expectations for each of the required sections. 
  • Review your own work to ensure that the "must-dos" are covered. 
  • Complete the online CFP (Call For Presenters) form by avoiding technical missteps. 
  • Outline the submission review timeline and process. 
This interactive program will provide opportunities for you to ask questions.
