At the member welcome reception held on Saturday, March 25, 2017, Membership Committee co-chairs Al Anderson, national sales manager for Bose Corporation of Framingham, Massachusetts, and Mike Eggleton, Jr., vice president of Raider Express, Inc., of Fort Worth, Texas, presented the awards. Nine companies were inducted into TCA’s prestigious Ambassador Club for reaching 25 years of membership, and four individuals were honored for helping to recruit members for the organization in 2016.
Employees of any TCA member company who recruit new members for TCA are designated “Rigsters” and thanked at the reception for their help in growing the association. To recognize their contributions, Rigsters are given a special lapel pin.
“TCA is fortunate to have so many long-standing and committed members,” said John Lyboldt, TCA’s president. “Their combined knowledge and experience has made this association the amazing resource that it is today. And we are also grateful to our Rigsters, who believe so deeply in what we do that they’re willing to take the time to share the rewards with other companies.”
