The Tire Industry Association (TIA) is on solid financial ground once again, TIA Executive Vice President Roy Littlefield told this morning.

TIA officials partially credit the association's rebound to more than 1,700 new members joining it since March of last year.

As a result of the influx, TIA has collected "over $1 million in dues, which is the first time we've hit that," says Littlefield.

TIA board members are working on a variety of initiatives, including the possible creation of a training program for tire pressure monitoring systems.

Also on the agenda is selecting a host city for the 2007 World Tire Expo. (Next year's Expo will be held in Louisville, Ky.)

"It's a recognition that the show is attractive to foreign retreaders, and we want to go to a destination that is going to appeal to them."
