Samaritan Award Applications Due Next Week
The 3PL Samaritan Award recognizes a TIA member for exceptional service and assistance to others in need. The recognized service or assistance can take any form:
- Volunteering logistical support
- Providing manpower, resources, or financial support to others in need
- Sponsoring sporting events
- Providing scholarships, hiring disabled individuals, or in other areas
The purpose of the award is to recognize the good works in which the 3PL industry engages by highlighting a specific 3PL Samaritan effort each year.
Eligibility: Any TIA Member, Associate Member, or their employees.
Process: A TIA Member can nominate itself, another TIA Member Company, individuals, or organizations. Nomination deadline is Fri., Jan. 18, 2019.
The nomination should outline the charitable activity, providing sufficient detail for the committee to select one award recipient. A committee of TIA members will then review the nominations and make a recommendation to the TIA Foundation Board of Directors. Selections will be made by February 13.
Recognition: The TIA 3PL Samaritan Award will be presented during the TIA 2019 Capital Ideas Conference & Exhibition, April 10-13, 2019, in Orlando, FL.
The company can designate a charity to receive funds raised by the Annual TIA Foundation Charity Fun Run at the TIA Conference. The company representative accepting the award will receive complimentary conference registration and be reimbursed for their airfare and their hotel while in Orlando.
