Bowie, MD – Roy Littlefield, executive vice president of the Tire Industry Association (TIA), one of the leading global authorities on tires, today announced that all members of the TIA Board have made a contribution to TIA’s political action committee, TirePAC, as part of a recent fundraising effort. This is the first time in TIA’s history where this has occurred. TIA encourages all tire industry professionals to contribute, as well. To learn how to make a contribution, visit the “Advocacy & Legislation” section of www.tireindustry.org, or call 800.876.8372.TirePAC was created shortly after the tire recalls of 2000 to assist those in Congress who assist the tire industry. It has been a crucial factor in helping to ensure that legislation beneficial to the tire industry is enacted, including the recent passage of H.R. 4, which removed the Form 1099 reporting provision.“I want to thank the members of TIA’s Board for setting the pace when it comes to raising funds for TirePAC. As TirePAC funds cannot come from TIA’s operating budget, it is important that we continue efforts to ensure that it has the adequate funds to continue the important work of protecting the tire industry in the halls of power,” said TIA Executive Vice President Roy Littlefield.“The TIA Board has clearly shown that TirePAC matters. Now, it’s time for the rest of the tire industry to step up and do their part. A donation as small as $25 can make a huge difference in making sure that the tire industry has the representation and protection it needs and deserves,” said TIA Government Affairs Committee Chair Randy Groh.
TIA is an international association representing all segments of the tire industry, including those that manufacture, repair, recycle, sell, service or use new or retreaded tires, and also those suppliers or individuals who furnish equipment, material or services to the industry. The Tire Industry Association (TIA) has a history that spans more than 80 years and includes several name changes. Originally known as the National Tire Dealers & Retreaders Association (NTDRA), the organization gave birth over the years to the American Retreaders Association (ARA) and the Tire Association of North America (TANA). ARA changed its name to the International Tire & Rubber Association (ITRA) and merged with TANA in 2002 to form the current Tire Industry Association (TIA), which now represents every interest in the tire industry.
