Bidding is Open for TIA Online Auction to Benefit Government Affairs

Posted on November 4, 2019

Bidding is now open for the Tire Industry Association's (TIA) one-day, online auction. Bids benefit TIA's government affairs efforts in Washington.

The auction, taking place the day prior to the opening of the Global Tire Expo/SEMA Show in Las Vegas, features unique memorabilia and artwork.

Online bidding already has begun and is open to TIA members and non-members. Bidding concludes at 7 p.m. EDT, Nov. 4.

TIA members and others can view auction items and register to bid by clicking here.

“We hope our members who are not at TIA’s pre-show events will participate in this unique fundraiser, with all proceeds benefiting our efforts in Washington,” says Roy Littlefield IV, TIA director of government affairs.

In addition to its efforts in tire training and tire safety, TIA’s mission is to represent all aspects of the tire industry at both the state and federal levels of government. The association works to protect the best interests of its members against legislative and regulatory issues that could threaten the industry's growth and well-being.

TIA takes leadership positions on legislative matters that could impact its member's bottom line including taxes, general business and employment issues, right to repair laws, health care reform, and other tire-related issues.
