The Texas Tire Dealers Association honored
TTDA
The Texas Tire Dealers Association was recently recognized by the Tire Industry Association with the annual TIA Industry Achievement Award. The award was presented during the TIA Leadership Luncheon just prior to the opening of the SEMA/Global Tire EXPO in Las Vegas.

The award was given to honor the TTDA legislative efforts during the past session of the Texas Legislature as well as previous sessions. It was noted by TIA Executive Director Roy Littlefield "TTDA, with limited resources, has been able to positively represent the tire industry and defeat legislation supported by much larger and very well financed organizations."

The Award reads:

Presented to Texas Tire Dealers Association
In recognition of continuous strong leadership in support of tire legislative efforts that positively affect the role of independent tire dealers and the tire industry.
