Role of TMC Study Groups


Role of TMC Study Groups

TMC’s organizational structure allows for quick passage of equipment and technology standards, while fully leveraging the technical expertise of its membership.  Our members elect TMC’s Board of Directors, which establish standing committees called Study Groups, which are dedicated to the improvement of equipment, maintenance, and maintenance management.

Each Study Group fulfills this mission through a clearly defined scope and one or more objectives. Each Study Group is headed up by a Chairman, and other officers consist of: 1st Vice Chairman; 2nd Vice Chairman; Secretary; Meeting Mechanic (lead); Sergeant-at-Arms; Future Truck Liaison; and Board Liaison. For a complete list of TMC Study Group Officers, click here.

The Study Groups create short-term subcommittees called Task Forces to develop solutions through the creation of voluntary standards.
