TIA is currently accepting applications for its Samaritan Award, which recognizes a TIA member for exceptional service and assistance to others in need. The Samaritan Award will be presented at the 2019 TIA Annual Conference & Exhibition in Orlando, FL.

The entire team at DAT immensely values the opportunity to connect with brokers, share information, learn from experience, and collect the feedback that inspires the next generation of solutions. Each year the TIA Conference just keeps getting better and better."
