A common suggestion of many non-profit organizations such as trade associations is that the association belongs to and is shaped by its members. When it comes to the TCA, this is absolutely the case. Oftentimes, this fact is overlooked by existing and potential members.
The mission of the Tilt-Up Concrete Association is to expand and improve the use of Tilt-Up as the preferred construction method by providing education and resources that enhance quality and performance. In order to fulfill the goals of this mission, the TCA works with a specific set of guidelines or charges. From these charges, committees are formed, publications are proposed, events are planned, and programs are established. While the TCA guidelines exist as a list of 20 items, they could be organized under two fundamental charges: to develop and expand Tilt-Up concrete markets and to maintain a professional stature as the best-informed organization on the subject of Tilt-Up concrete.
